Range-Based Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Navigation Expressed in Geodetic Coordinates

Unlike many terrestrial applications, GPS is unavailable to autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) while submerged due to the rapid attenuation of radio frequency signals in seawater. Underwater vehicles often use other navigation technologies. This thesis describes a range-based acoustic navigation...
