This paper introduces a method for the navigation of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) and tracking of submersible targets that relies on analytic inversion of magnetic field anomalies. The magnetic sensor arrangement proposed configures a gradiometer array whose nodes may correspond to a set of collaborative AUVs deployed in a formation of adaptable geometry. The solution presented envisions applications to scientific, industrial, and military activities.
