An underwater glider we are developing for virtual mooring will be able to remain in a designated area for several years, moving between the sea surface and the seafloor up to 2,100 m deep, monitoring the sea environment. It will be able to sleep on the seafloor or while drifting in water to extend the monitoring duration. As described herein, we present results of heading-control tests conducted using a long tank. We also present results of sea tests conducted in Suruga Bay.
