This article focuses on theoretical developments in modeling and control of High-Speed Supercavitating Vehicles (HSSV). A simplified model of longitudinal dynamics is developed for control, and a dynamic inversion based inner-loop control technique is proposed to handle the switched, time-delay dependent behavior of the vehicle. Two outer-loop control schemes are compared for guidance level tracking. Various aspects of disturbance characteristics and actuator dynamics are investigated and analyzed.
