This comprehensive book details the design of control systems for ocean vehicles. Readers are shown how the implementation of mathematical models and control theory can reduce fuel consumption and improve reliability and performance. Advanced control techniques are applied to a range of ocean vehicles including submarines, remotely operated vehicles, surface ships, high-speed craft and floating off-shore structures. The modelling of ocean vehicles, environmental disturbances, the dynamics and stability of ships and sensor and navigation systems are all explored in depth.
