dc.description.abstractPerformance tests of the longitudinal and lateral propulsion devices for use on the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) II are presented. The propulsion requirements for the AUV are discussed and a brief review of the theoretical performance of propulsors is presented. The test procedures used to determine the operating range characteristics of the candidate propulsion devices are described and the results are compared with those obtained theoretically as well as with the parameters of large marine propulsion systems. The results of simulations of longitudinal motion using a non-linear model of the AUV are documented, providing an initial estimate of vehicle accelerationdeceleration performance.en_US
