Giving our Wave Glider a Name

We have been calling our autonomous surface ocean robot Wave Glider, but we want to give it a proper name while it continues its ADS-B reception tests in the North Atlantic Ocean. That’s where we need your help. We have four finalists and we’d like you to help us name our Wave Glider by choosing your favorite.

The naming contest will run through 23:59 UTC on Thursday, 22 September. The name of our Wave Glider will be announced on Friday!
