We present a non-linear navigation solution, referred as the Reverse Bearing Only Target Motion Analysis (Reverse BO-TMA) to passively self localize an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV). Our methods are based only on measuring the radiated noise of a passing vessel sailing on a known route. Compared to traditional range-based underwater localization methods, Reverse BO-TMA allows the AUV to remain farther from the reference vessel, and does not require collaboration or message exchange. To demonstrate the effectiveness of our approach, we have implemented a prototype for Reverse BO-TMA and successfully tested it in three sea experiments.
