SEGMENT 2: Voyage of the Scarlet Knight, The First Underwater Glider to Cross the Atlantic Ocean. Interview with Dan Crowell about the project. Rutgers University's underwater vehicle successfully navigates an ocean. Unlike other underwater drones, RU27 and its kin are able to travel without the aid of a propeller. Instead, they move up and down through the top 100 to 200 meters of seawater by adjusting their buoyancy while gliding forward using their swept-back wings. With this strategy, they can go a remarkably long way on a remarkably small amount of energy.
