Abstract
The Spinnaker Project used an unmanned autonomous underwater vehicle to lay a cable on the bottom of the Arctic Ocean out to a distance of 180 km from shore. The journey was entirely under heavy polar pack ice, and navigation was a serious concern. This paper discusses the navigational error model that was used; it gives a derivation of the model, and it makes a comparison of the predictions with actual measurements.
