The glider coordinated control system (GCCS) uses a detailed glider model for prediction and a simple particle model for planning to steer a fleet of underwater gliders to a set of coordinated trajectories. The GCCS also serves as a simulation testbed for the design and evaluation of multivehicle control laws. In this brief, we describe the GCCS and present experimental results for a virtual deployment in Monterey Bay, CA and a real deployment in Buzzards Bay, MA.
