Underwater Electromagnetic Guidance System

An electromagnetic (EM) guidance system for autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV) traveling along a fixed route. The system consists of a preinstalled underwater electromagnetic guidance track, a pair of AUV-mounted EM sensors, and an onboard processing unit. The track emits very-low-frequency (VLF) electromagnetic wave which has good penetration in water, and is insensitive to multipath degradation. The onboard sensors amplify the received VLF signal and calculate the direction of the magnetic field. The processing unit then estimates the relative position and orientation of the AUV with respect to the signal-emitting track.
