Basic principles of building autonomous unmanned underwater vehicles

Autonomous uninhabited underwater vehicles (AUVs) are used to solve search and survey tasks, conduct marine ground surveys, and survey the underwater situation. The AUV design principles are determined by the goals of its future use (mission of use) and the required characteristics for solving the assigned tasks. These characteristics are decisive in the design of AUVs, from equipment, hydroacoustic means to shape and color.
