The Slocum glider was expertly prepared by Ben Hodges (WHOI). Support for the deployment and operation of the glider is provided by the U.S. Navy. 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).
