Abstract:

Mine Countermeasures MCM involving Autonomous Underwater Vehicles AUVs are especially susceptible to error, given the constraints on underwater acoustic communication and the inconstancy of the underwater communication channel. Little work has been done to systematize error identification and response in AUV communication. We introduce a systematic approach involving Design Failure Mode and Effects Analysis DFMEA that is adapted to the complex character of communication between autonomous agents.
