A three dimensional localisation algorithm for a swarm of underwater vehicles is presented. The proposed approach is grounded on an extended Kalman filter (EKF) scheme used to fuse some proprioceptive data such as the vessel's speed and some esteroceptive measurement such as the time of flight (TOF) sonar distance of the companion vessels. The results of several simulations are presented. Some considerations about the available underwater bandwidth and the communication needed by the approach are discussed.
