One challenge that NATO faces is the vulnerability of its military forces and critical infrastructure to terrorist attacks from the waterside in ports and harbours.
CMRE is developing a system concept for early contact and warning above and below the water in ports.
The Centre is also engaging military and civilian security providers early in the concept development cycle in this new area of research by hosting conferences, offering courses and hosting virtual red-on-blue gaming exercises on CMRE's OpenSea Tactical Theatre Simulator.

A key to developing autonomous systems for NATO is communication among data gathering platforms below and above the water. Unlike mature network technologies that are used above water, underwater communication is in its nascent stages. The Centre is uniquely positioned to develop the necessary technologies and to help develop and promote the necessary standards and protocols for interoperable communication and networking environments.

The Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation (CMRE), directed by RADM (Ret.) Hank Ort, 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.
