A SOLO-II profiling float mated with early TREC Battery technology completed more than 1000 profiles during 18 months at sea.  The U.S. Office of Naval Research provided support for this collaborative effort between NASA/JPL and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography.

A Slocum Glider using modified TREC Battery technology was demonstrated  during an ONR-sponsored collaboration between NASA/JPL, Teledyne Webb Research, and Rutgers University.    Photo credit:  Chip Haldeman (Rutgers).

A new high-endurance, environmentally-powered profiling float platform developed by Seatrec in partnership with OSEAN Underwater Technology (France).  Mermaid-TREC may be outfitted with a variety of physical, biogeochemical, and acoustical sensors.  Custom configurations are available that combine traditional storage batteries with the environmentally rechargable TREC Battery to achieve up to 2000 profiles.  Learn more...
