The OTN glider was prepared and deployed by Richard Davis, Adam Comeau, Brad Covey, Sue L'Orsa, Hansen Johnson, Kim Davies, and Chris Taggart (Dalhousie University). Support for the deployment and operation of the gliders through the Whales, Habitat and Listening Experiment (WHaLE) was provided by the Marine Environmental Observation Prediction and Response Network (MEOPAR). Support for the development, integration, and testing of the glider DMON/LFDCS was provided by the Office of Naval Research and 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).
