A "multidisciplinary team...from more than a dozen prestigious research institutions" and lead by members from Princeton and the Naval Postgraduate School are releasing a school of "gliders" to take various measurements from the ocean. Link
"But the project has potentially larger implications. It may lead to the
development of robot fleets that forecast ocean conditions and better protect
endangered marine animals, track oil spills, and guide military operations at
