Depending on the configuration, Raytheon Anschütz submarine 3D-steering control offers three modes of operation, namely

  • Automatic mode: Positions the rudder and hydroplanes according to the 3D autopilot’s control commands (closed loop)
  • Manual/semi-automatic mode: Positions the rudder and hydroplanes as determined by the operator and aids the operator by suggesting how to best control the submarine’s dynamic behavior (man-in-the-loop)
  • Emergency mode: The rudder engines are directly controlled by the operator from the console (open loop)
