Mission overview: Phase Three was an ambitious two-week mission involving ten marine robots operating off northwest Scotland. The fleet was the largest to be simultaneously deployed in UK waters, and saw a combination of surface and submarine gliders collecting marine environmental data as a contribution to the Royal Navy’s ‘Unmanned Warrior’ as well as being made available to the marine science community via the British Oceanographic Data Centre (BODC).
