Unmanned Surface & Underwater Veh

This course provides the principles and concepts of unmanned and autonomous vehicles used for water applications where unique challenges for mobile robotic systems are encountered. Students will explore the problems of perception, navigation, communications, control, sensory payloads, and fundamentals of propulsion in the water environment. The capabilities and limitations will be examined and the student will be able to select the appropriate platform types and sensors to meet application requirements. Applications explored include both surface and underwater functions in the civilian, commercial and military fields. Prerequisite: UAS-140. (3-0-3) NOTE: Students enrolled in this course incur an additional lab fee of $350
