Analysis of Unmanned Undersea Vehicle (Uuv) Architectures and an Assessment of Uuv Integration Into Undersea Applications
French, Daniel W.
There are prominent unmanned undersea vehicle (UUV) systems existing in the commercial marketplace today, but these systems have a relatively small role and presence in U.S. Navy application. This thesis suggests what existingcommercially available UUV system architectural attributes could be used now in U.S. Navy applications. After a survey of multiple existing commercial UUV systems, five of the prevalent systems in the marketplace were selected for analysis and comparison of their system arc
