Long Baseline Acoustic Navigation Of Deeptowed And Autonomous Underwater Vehicles
Tech ID: 19927 / UC Case 2005-086-0
UC San Diego inventors have devised a novel method for locating one or more deeptowed or autonomous underwater vehicles during geophysical or oceanographic surveys. The invention has the following features:
- Works in real time.
- Saves the time and cost of deploying, navigating, and recovering the seafloor transponder net.
- Has the navigation array move with the underwater vehicle, rather than remaining stationary.
