The design and construction of an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) for use as a research and development testbed at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) is presented. Design objectives, analysis and trade-offs are discussed with respect to a generic AUV and specifically detailed for the case of the NPS AUV II. System integration and flexibility is emphasized in the subject vehicle to support presently planned and future research employment. Hull, mobility, sensor, automatic control, and energy subsystemsl are described. Design and fabrication techniques for the NPS AUV II vehicle hull and equipments are documented
