Over the past two years, the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) has developed a new Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (UUV) called the Yellowfin. The purpose of the vehicle is to provide a platform for research and development of autonomous, multivehicle underwater technology. This paper documents the design of the vehicle with an emphasis on the acoustic communication system, including the hardware and software. The testing of the ACOMMS hardware and software system is also discussed.
