An underwater glide is a type of autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV). Underwater gliders are buoyancy-driven device. It can alternately reduce and expand displaced volume to dive or climb through the ocean. It has wings to control its motion from vertical to horizontal at very low power consumption. The benefits of this underwater glider are at its long range and high endurance for certain types of mission. Gliders are designed to slip through the ocean a fraction of meter per second to cover hundreds of meters for weeks. It can be use in commercial and military purpose. The main. objective of this project is to design and develop an underwater glider for monitoring applications. The design and development of this underwater glider have hydrodynamic characteristic, stability and buoyancy. The PIC is used to control the movement of this glider. There are three major phase in developing this glider which are mechanical design, programming and fabrication. The speed and power of the glider in pool and lake are then calculated.
