The US Navy is developing Seaweb undersea acoustic networking technology to enable distributed autonomous ocean sensors. An Unmanned Undersea Vehicle (UUV) can operate as a mobile node among the grid in the conduct of its own mission, using the fixed nodes as navigation reference points. The fixed grid provides a cellular communications infrastructure for command & control and data telemetry. In turn, the UUV can support the fixed grid by physically redistributing large quantities of data throughout the network or for breaching the sea surface and acting as a mobile gateway node, communicating via satellite to a command center ashore. Assimilating UUVs as network nodes significantly enhances undersea network capability, expanding the available concepts of operations. This thesis concerns the use of the fixed undersea network as a means to track the UUV and anticipates routine operations of mobile nodes in the context of fixed grids. This work is also a fundamental step toward advanced operations of fully mobile networks in the form of collaborative swarms.
