The Slocum glider was prepared by Ben Hodges and Mark Baumgartner (WHOI) and deployed and piloted by Mark Baumgartner. Engineering support for the DMON2 instrument deployed on this glider was provided by Jim Partan, Dennis Giaya, Kayleah Griffen, Keenan Ball, Steve Faluotico and Tom Hurst (WHOI). Support for the deployment and operation of the glider was provided by NOAA Northeast Fisheries Science Center. 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).
