Abstract: CAMPE spends most of its life in the sea. CAMPE is the name of a sea glider deployed on April 23rd. For the next two months, the immense volume of water south of the Maltese Islands will be its home. With the ability to dive repeatedly down to depths of 1000m, this torpedo-like vehicle carries a payload of sensors to sound the sea uninterrupted as it steers its way autonomously through the water, sending signals and data to a land station by satellite communication every time it surfaces. The result? A massive collection of data in quasireal time that sheds light on the vast expanse of water yet unexplored just south of Malta’s home shores.
