An autonomous underwater vehicle comprises several subsystems which are integrated to provide the necessary cooperation and interaction. However, it has become increasingly difficult to precisely specify all of the system requirements due to their complexity. It is important to develop an overall spine architecture that is extensible and is able to accommodate changes without major modifications, as well as highly reliable and maintainable. One way to reduce the overall development time of AUVs is to develop the subsystems in parallel with the specification and characterization of the spine architecture. Simulations may be used to allow the development of the spine architecture to proceed even without the presence of some of the subsystems.
