Abstract:

Bluefins business focus is the design and manufacture of autonomous underwater vehicles for use in military, scientific, and commercial applications. For many AUV missions, accurate navigation that does not depend on acoustic beacons in the operating region is one of the primary remaining technical hurdles. This effort will address this need through the creation of the Cornerstone AUV Navigator, an extensible, flexible, low-cost AUV navigator that will solve the navigation needs of a variety of AUVs.
