Ocean acoustic tomography (OAT) can infer the state of the interior of the survey domain from measurements along the periphery. Traditionally, a network of mooring platforms with projector/hydrophone array is deployed, sometimes combined with moving vessel nodes. In this paper we look at the OAT problem with autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) equipped with a hydrophone as a moving receiver and study the AUV path-planning techniques to optimize the tomographic measurements. The path planning… CONTINUE READING
