Autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) have become a standard tool for data gathering and intervention in security, offshore and marine science applications. In these environments, mission effectiveness directly depends on vehicle's operability. Operability underlies the vehicle's ultimate availability. Two main vehicle characteristics can improve operability: reliability depends on the internal hardware components of the vehicle and survivability, a concept that is closely related with vehicle failures due to external factors or damages.
