Abstract:

A system for determining the velocity and trajectory of an underwater vehicle comprises a data acquisition processor coupled to a plurality of sensors providing depth heading, pitch and yaw data for the underwater vehicle. The acquisition processor collects data from the sensors, correlates and assembles the collected data into hatches and processes the batches to determine vehicle velocity and trajectory of the vehicle relative to an earth-fixed coordinate system.
