underwater vehicle


In the paper, a simulator of an autonomous biomimetic underwater vehicle (BUV) destined for underwater reconnaissance has been presented. ABUV in the form of technology demonstrator on VII level of technology readiness will be the final effect of the development project No. DOBR-BIO4/033/13015/2013, funded by National Centre of Research and Development. In the first part of the paper, a mathematical model of the BUV designed for implementation of the simulator has been described. Then, selected results of the BUV operation in the form of courses of the vehicle motion parameters have been presented. First of all the simulator will be used for tuning initial version of autonomy system of the biomimetic underwater vehicle. Moreover, it will be used for simulation of operation of sensors installed on board of the BUV in conditions of undulating motion.
