At CMRE, a major component of maritime security is maritime situational awareness (MSA), which ultimately addresses the question: is this ship behaving in a way that requires further investigation? Researchers are trying to answer that question using the Collaborative Multi-Sensor/Source Fusion and Tracking Tool (COMSSOFT), developed at the Centre.

When making decisions during operations, naval commanders, planners and operators rely on meteorological and oceanographic data and forecasts. However, in the coastal zone, where NATO navies typically operate, the environment can change dramatically over short distances and lengths of time. In addition, resources to gather meteorological and oceanographic data are typically limited as is our understanding of complex ocean processes. These limitations create uncertainties. Researchers at the Centre are trying to quantify these uncertainties.

Since 2008, NATO has been providing protection from piracy in international waters in the Gulf of Aden and the Horn of Africa. The solution to piracy, which may be some time in coming, ultimately lies on shore. Until then, counter-piracy includes multinational policing operations and fortifying merchant vessels for pirate avoidance and the prevention of boarding. The Centre addresses elements of these in several projects.
