The objectives of the project are twofold: 1-The study and implementation of geophysical navigation (GN) of an AUV using bathymetric data and currently available algorithms, and the assessment of their performance through trials at sea. 2- The development of improved algorithms for terrain-based localization and new techniques for implementation of GN resorting to geomagnetic information.
