Most sugar gliders have gray bodies with a black stripe down the center of their backs.
Beyond the monitoring of the ocean with CTD sensors to support sonar operations, The US Navy Meteorology and Oceanography Command uses glider technology for environmental data collection for improvements to models in order to better understand the oceans and support naval operations, the spokesperson said: "We're open to exploring any innovative use of gliders or attached sensors that can help enhance the mission.
In October 2016, the agencies updated the standards for 2021-2027 model year medium- and heavy-duty vehicles, and--for the first time under the GHG program--regulated trailers and gliders with compliance deadlines beginning in 2018.
