Abstract Autonomous operations are vital to future naval operations. Unmanned systems, including autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) and autonomous surface vehicles (ASVs), are anticipated to play a key role for critical tasks such as mine counter- measures (MCM) and anti-submarine warfare (ASW). Addressing these issues with autonomous systems poses a host of difficult research challenges, including sensing, power, acoustic communications, navigation, and autonomous decision-making.
