This thesis deals with the development of a small high-speed autonomous underwater vehicle or AW known as the Hydrocopter that can mimic the motion of a helicopter. A model was designed and constructed. It was tested in the Deep Water Tank at Memorial University. A SIMULINK simulation of the AUV was developed to study its underwater motions. The simulation and test responses show that the AUV can move at high speed along any 3D trajectory.
