A soft unmanned underwater vehicle with augmented thrust capability
The components which could make Soft Unmanned Underwater Vehicles a winning technology for a range of marine operations are addressed: these include vortex-enhanced thrust, added mass recovery and high degree of compliance of the vehicle. Based on these design criteria and recent advancement in soft-bodied, pulsed-jet thrusters, a new underwater vehicle is developed and tested.

Abstract

The components which could make Soft Unmanned Underwater Vehicles a winning technology for a range of marine operations are addressed: these include vortex-enhanced thrust, added mass recovery and high degree of compliance of the vehicle. Based on these design criteria and recent advancement in soft-bodied, pulsed-jet thrusters, a new underwater vehicle is developed and tested.
