Abstract

Recent years have highlighted that the necessity of ocean data in time and space for the predictions of environmental changes on Earth. As one method of acquiring data, we propose a virtual mooring system using an underwater vehicle. We have developed a disk-type underwater glider. Using the glider, oceanographic observations were conducted in the East China Sea in July, 2016. The details were presented at ISOPE2017. As described in this paper, results of model tests related to course control conducted to improve the performance of virtual mooring are presented. Then the influence of a vertical tail wing on motion control is discussed.
