This paper describes a design development of an underwater glider which includes the body design, controller design and the sensor integration. The underwater glider is used for deep water to observe large areas with minimal use of energy and move through the water by changing the body weight. The glider contained a cylindrical body attached with two wings and a fix tail. The controller has been designed to use a comparator circuit integrate with a pressure sensor to control the depth level. The pressure sensor mounted on the glider used to sense the underwater pressure. For the beginning, this underwater glider is limited to a depth of 0-10 meters.
