The actuators of an over-actuated AUV have been modeled and this information used to design a control algorithm that enables an vehicle to operate throughout a wide range of forward velocities. Both experimental and simulation results are presented for the performance of the through-body vertical tunnel thrusters, four independent control surfaces, and the interaction between the vehicle hull and actuators. The control algorithm has been tested and shown to work adequately well provided the vehicle acceleration is constrained
