The NRV Alliance just sailed for her first NATO sea trial of the year. New assets on board are aimed to enhance collaborative robotics for MCM applications, including a new vehicle, which only apparently duplicates the CMRE MUSCLE prototype.
The 2017 ERL Emergency Robots competition will be hosted in Piombino, Tuscany (Italy) on 15-23 September.
Staff discussed advances related to the use of AUVs in MCM operations and opportunities for collaboration.
EKOE presents results and future solutions of robotic ISR networks for NATO at the event in Virginia Beach (USA).
On 17-28 October 2016, NRV Alliance and CRV Leonardo both operated in the LCAS16 experiment.
Back from the French-led exercise Olives Noires 2016 , the NATO Research Vessel Alliance is now in the Ligurian Sea to continue scientific tests of new robotic solutions for naval mine countermeasures as part of the Multinational AutoNomous Experiment 2016 (MANEX ‘16).
NRV Alliance participated in the French-led exercise Olives Noires 2016.
From 5 to 31 July 2016, off the coast of Portugal, the Portuguese Navy, CMRE and the University of Porto operate again together in the maritime exercise which also marks the first international at-sea campaign for NRV Alliance under the Italian Flag.
On 8-13 July 2016, CMRE also hosts the Robocademy FP7 EU project Workshop, training the next generation of specialists in underwater technologies.
Data was collected by gliders during the LOGMEC environmental campaign, which also marked the longest CMRE gliders’ deployment ever in Italian waters (from 1 May to 30 June 2016).
Underwater data acquired by a CMRE underwater robot network operating at 2,000 km distance from operational commands was integrated for the first time in near real-time in NATO and national C2 and COP systems in CWIX 2016 at JFTC, Poland.
The larger of CMRE’s ships is now operated by an Italian military crew under an Italian Navy Flag.
New field swappable underwater storage unit have been installed on AUV with a Synthetic Aperture Sonar payload.
On 22 December 2015 a memorandum of understanding was signed in Rome between NATO/STO/CMRE and the Ministry of Defence of Italy.
The event, funded by the EU FP7 and organised locally by CMRE, attracted roboticists from all over the world and more than 1200 Italian spectators. The final video of the competition is now online.
The oceanographic campaign GLISTEN ‘15, on going off Elba Island (Italy), is testing new sensors and solutions for ocean characterisation using underwater gliders.
