The Slocum glider was expertly prepared by Ben Hodges and Tina Haskins (WHOI) and deployed by Tina Haskins (WHOI) with assistance from Anna Clabaugh and Zach Swaim (Duke University). Support for the deployment and operation of the glider was provided by NAVFAC Atlantic (Joel Bell). Support for the development and testing of the DMON/LFDCS was provided by the Office of Naval Research, and additional support for integration and testing was provided by the NOAA National Marine Fisheries Service Advanced Sampling Technologies Working Group in collaboration with the Northeast Fisheries Science Center's Passive Acoustics Research Group (leader: Sofie Van Parijs).
