    Pectoral Fin Propulsion Research
    (Robot Fish)

    Robot Fish

    What is it?
    An on-going research project at the Naval Research Laboratory investigating underwater control and propulsion by robotic pectoral (side) fins. We are studying the mechanical design, fin control methods, efficiency and effectiveness, and vehicle level control of these fins.

    Given that this is an on-going project, only information published and approved for release can be posted here.
