MRT and Edgerton Instructor Ed Moriarty traveled to Ketchikan, Alaska, in summer of 2012 for the first sea trials of the team’s underwater glider. The team exceeded test requirements by running untethered in 300' of water and cycling down to a depth of 45'. In the fall of 2012 the team traveled to the Naval Surface Warfare Center (Carderock) in Bethesda, Maryland, for further trials of their glider.
