Abstract : Certain maneuvering functions of the Advanced Unmanned Search System (AUSS) vehicle must be performed without human intervention. This report covers the design and performance of algorithms for the hovering functions of the AUSS vehicle. The performance of algorithms for hover heading, hover pitch, hover depth, and hover altitude was simulated on a computer and measured by at-sea testing. This report documents that performance.
