Abstract

In this paper, the authors propose a novel exploration system for ocean floor resources using an autonomous underwater glider and OBEM (Ocean bottom electromagnetometer). Studies on the gliding performance and the hydrodynamic characteristics of several kinds of body shape were carried out for the preliminary design of the system. Gliding ratios in a steady flow were estimated based on CFD calculation for different main wing shapes. The effects of the size of the body and the camber of the main wing were examined as well. It was confirmed that designed vehicle had efficient gliding performance to achieve the autonomous OBEM measurement.
