The purpose of this paper is to describe the feasibility research on an oscillating fin propulsion control system as a vehicle actuator. The system is designed and constructed in order to be combined with ship models. Tank cruising tests are conducted to confirm the system's feasibility. As a result, several advantages of the oscillating fin system are found. A neural network is successfully applied for an identification of the ship model with the oscillating fin, and its effectiveness is confirmed
