Abstract This paper investigates the use of commercial modems mounted in a short-baseline (SBL) configuration on an autonomous surface craft (ASC) for tracking other marine vehicles. We have developed a method for tracking an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) from an ASC using one-way range measurements provided by standard Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI) modems. The method does not require transmission of detailed navigation information, but rather uses short ranging packets, which… Expand

TLDR
The goal of this work is to enable the task of navigating multiple autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) over length scales of O(100 km), while maintaining error tolerances commensurate with conventional long-baseline transponder-based navigation systems (i.e., O(1 m), but without the requisite need for deploying, calibrating, and recovering seafloor anchored acoustic transponders.
