The Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation (CMRE), directed by Dr. Dirk Tielbuerger, is an established, world-class NATO scientific research and experimentation facility located in La Spezia, Italy.
The CMRE has over 50 years of service to NATO in its former establishments as the NATO Undersea Research Centre and as SACLANTCEN. CMRE conducts state-of-the-art scientific research and experimentation ranging from concept development to prototype demonstration in an operational environment and has produced a cadre of leaders in ocean science, modeling and simulation, acoustics and other disciplines, as well as producing critical results and understanding that have been built into the operational concepts of NATO and the nations.

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.
