PROJECT TITLE :
A Concept for Docking a UUV With a Slowly Moving Submarine Under Waves
Docking an unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV) with a submerged submarine in littoral waters in high sea states needs more dexterity than either the submarine or streamlined UUV possess. The proposed resolution uses an automated active dock to correct for transverse relative motion between the vehicles. Acoustic, electromagnetic, and optical sensors provide position sensing redundancy in unpredictable conditions. The concept is being evaluated by building and testing individual elements to characterize their performance, errors, and limitations, and then simulating the system to determine its viability at low value.
