Abstract:

Navigation is one of the fundamental roadblocks to development of AUV technology today. Improved navigation and coordination of multiple vehicles is essential to reduce space-time aliasing and increase the efficiency and effectiveness of ocean mapping and reconnaissance using AUVs. However, current navigation sensors for low-cost vehicles are inadequate for many mission objectives to be met. The ultimate goal is to create a generic, flexible, intelligent, cost-effective navigation capability for the widest range of AUV platforms and missions possible.
