In this study, a nonlinear mathematical model for an unmanned underwater survey vehicle is obtained. The inertial navigation system and vision-based measurement systems are modelled. The magnetic compass, depth sensor and pitot tube are used in order to support vehicle's attitude, velocity and depth information. The state errors are estimated with error state estimation algorithm from the noisy measurement data. The navigational data of the vehicle can be obtained accurately using the extended Kalman filter. Then, some parameters which are vaguely known in the mathematical model of the vehicle have been estimated by a system identification study. All of this study is performed in Matlab/Simulink.

In this study, a nonlinear mathematical model for an unmanned underwater survey vehicle (SAGA) is obtained. The structure of the mathematical model of the vehicle comes from a Newton-Euler formulation. The three-dimensional motion is realized by a suitable combination of right, left and vertical thrusters. The navigation problem is solved by a combination of the inertial navigation system and acoustic-based measurements, which are integrated to obtain more accurate vehicle navigation data.

In this study, navigation and control algorithms for unmanned sea surface vehicles are investigated. For this purpose, firstly the mathematical model of a sea surface vehicle with two propellers providing stable maneuvering capabilities is constructed considering Newton-Euler equations. The next phase is to design a suitable navigation algorithm which integrates the solutions of “Inertial Navigation System (INS)” and external aids such as “Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS)” and magnetometer. At this...

This thesis includes mathematical model, navigation, controller design and guidance of the underwater gliders. Firstly, the mathematical model of the underwater glider is obtained with external forces and moments. The hydrodynamic coefficients are obtained by using the strip theory and Missile DATCOM Simulation Program.
