Please do not disturb: NOAA uncrewed underwater glider in the area

9 Feb 2022 12:15 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

NOAA's Pacific Marine Environmental Lab has deployed an uncrewed underwater glider to advance ocean observing capabilities in the area between Golden Gardens and Carkeek Park, Seattle, WA. It will remain in this area for the duration of its mission ending around March 15, 2022

The glider will be on the surface for 5-10 minute periods every hour to transmit system information via satellite to our office. The remainder of the time will be spent diving to 400 feet or more. The system is being observed by a remote pilot who can send commands to the glider during its surface interval. 

Request: We would like to request mariners to please not touch the glider if observed on the surface. There is a phone number on the glider to contact our office with questions or concerns. Questions can also be directed to Nick Delich at (206) 552-6065. We would appreciate it if you would distribute this information to your members or groups that frequent the waters in this area. 

Glider Information:

·  Size | 9ft long, 4ft wing span

·  Color | Neon yellow with a 4ft long bronze antenna sticking out of the stern of the glider. It has no light signals.

Attached are pictures of what the glider looks like.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you for your help.

Respectfully,

LTJG Zucker
