Abstract

In this paper, we introduce the design of an autonomous underwater vehicle with the intent of conveying this testbed to the multidisciplinary design optimization research community for exploration of new and existing modeling and optimization methodologies. The design of an autonomous underwater vehicle poses a largescale design scenario. We have decomposed the analyses into a system module and five subsystems: guidance and control, payload, power, machinery, and hydrodynamics/propulsion. Our initial formulation follows an Individual Discipline Feasible approach to multidisciplinary design optimization, and the included results provide a feasible design that maximizes payload length for exploratory electronic equipment.
