Abstract: Submersible thermal glider is a small gliding AUV robot of 40,000-km operational range which harvests its propulsive energy from the heat flow between the vehicle engine and the thermal gradient of the temperate and tropical of deep-ocean water. In this paper, the design-optimisation of both the glider and the thermal control engine system are discussed including with the design-genesis and approach, field trial results, concept strength, and limitations and potential use.
Keywords: Submersible; thermal; control; robot; glider; simulation; thermal; deep-ocean.
