This project is about developing an underwater glider. It’s driven depending on buoyancy adjustment of itself and move horizontally wing. Underwater glider becomes more important especially in oceanographic and this project is concerned with the design and development an underwater glider using remote control (RC). This glider is designed by using a buoyancy control to make the glider become float and using a hydrodynamic concept. The main part of this an underwater glider consist of wings, tail, receiver and transmitter board, DC motor, fan and remote control. This glider is controlled by using radio frequency (RF) with 4 channels. The RC will control the movement of a glider and the DC motor will be used to rotate the fan. However, DC motor spins too fast and has too little torque to drive the loads. Thus, gear reduction is required to slow down the rotational speed and increase the torque of the motors.
