The goal of a simulator is to provide for the testing of new technologies and to facilitate the eventual transfer of these technologies to "in situ" applications. Autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) offer the potential for an efficient and cost effective means for greatly increased access to the largely unknown underwater ocean environment. In this paper, a simulation model is developed to test AUV navigation applications. The model consists of a canonical class of simulated objects, multiple instances of which are related in a hierarchical manner, to model all physical objects that reside in a unified underwater environment.
