DSRV(in)
function [xdot,U] = DSRV(in)
% [xdot, U] = DSRV(in), with in=[x,ui] returns returns the speed U in m/s (optionally) and the 
% time derivative of the state vector x = [ w q x z theta ]' for a 
% deep submergence rescue vehicle (DSRV) L = 5.0 m, where
%
% w     = heave velocity                 (m/s)
% q     = pitch velocity                 (rad/s)
% x     = x-position                     (m)
% z     = z-position, positive downwards (m)
% theta = pitch angle                    (rad)
%
% The inputs are:
% ui     = delta (rad), where delta is the stern plane
% U0     = nominal speed (optionally). Default value is U0 = 4.11 m/s = 8 knots.
