The Wave Glider's rudder contains the vessel's compass, so that operators thousands of miles away know which direction they are pointed at all times.
The vehicle is easily configured and navigates along preset points. If desired, a remote operator can "steer" the vehicle as they wish by altering those points during the course of sailing.
