This paper describes the approach to intelligent control adopted for the new autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) "Odyssey." The vehicle is designed for survey operations to depths of 6000 m and has a range of up to 300 km. In-water tests have demonstrated vehicle dynamic control and simple survey missions, and results for both are presented. Simulation has been extensively used as a development and preliminary validation environment for vehicle software.
