Glider Service Centre

Europe’s go-to glider pitstop

Our Glider Service Centre in Southampton is Teledyne’s accredited service centre for Europe.

From here, we can repair, upgrade and undertake warranty work on Teledyne’s Slocum Gliders.

For years, we’ve run Europe’s largest fleet of underwater gliders. Our in-house expertise is unrivalled – and we’re willing to share it.

For our clients, we offer:

  • Servicing to science bays, including calibration and pressure testing
  • Warranty work
  • Piloting
  • Training

Teledyne has its own glider service centre in North Falmouth, Massachusetts. So why would you ever use ours?

Why use our Glider Service Centre?

We can think of a few reasons:

  • Faster turnaround times for European clients
  • No need to send fragile sensors to the USA for calibration
  • Local expertise
  • Reduced shipping times and costs for European clients
  • Reduced tax liability thanks to our inward processing and customs warehouse
  • World-class, multidisciplinary expertise

We’re also planning to offer a more extensive menu of repairs and upgrades, and we’ll soon be hosting specialist training courses.

Gliders are becoming more popular as platforms for sensor deployment thanks to their unrivalled range, duration and low cost.
