From 5 to 31 July 2016, off the coast of Portugal, the Portuguese Navy, the NATO Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation 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.

The REP16-Atlantic features and objectives have been presented on 18 July in Lisbon (Portugal), in the presence of Rear Admiral Matthew A. Zirkle (U.S. Navy), Deputy Chief of Staff Submarines – COMSUBNATO, and Portuguese authorities.

The event, funded by the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), has been presented in Florence by regional and local authorities. The euRathlon consortium has entrusted the NATO Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation the local organisation of the competition.
euRathlon ‘15 will also include several world-class side events at Tor del Sale and in Piombino, downtown. On 23 September, at Tor del Sale, two humanoid robots, WALK-MAN and DRC-HUBO, who recently participated in the DARPA Robotics Challenge in Los Angeles (USA), for example will give a demonstration in disaster response scenarios for the first time in Europe.

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).

Data from gliders operating during LOGMEC were also integrated for the first time in near real-time in NATO and national command and control (C2) systems at the Coalition Warrior Interoperability eXploration, eXperimentation, eXamination, eXercise (CWIX).

From 15 to 28 September 2016, the NATO Research Vessel Alliance, operated by the Italian Navy for the NATO Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation (CMRE) based in La Spezia (Italy), is taking part for the first time in exercise Olives Noires 2016 in the Mediterranean sea, off the French coast. Olives Noires 2016 (ON16) is a live exercise involving NATO, French, Italian, Spanish, Greek and Slovenian naval units. The aimof the exercise is to enhance operational readiness levels and multinational cooperation training between NATO and French maritime forces in tactics and procedures in the littoral environment.

The primary purpose of the CMRE experiment in Olives Noires 2016 is to test solutions and advance methods for using robotics in mine countermeasures (MCM).

JANUS, the CMRE underwater communication protocol, becomes a NATO standard JANUS, the CMRE underwater communication protocol, becomes a NATO standard

NATO Nations recently agreed that JANUS is the NATO Standard for digital underwater
communications. That is the first time ever for a digital underwater communication protocol
to be recognised at international level.  The protocol opens the way for a standardised Internet of Underwater Things.

Tests of JANUS at sea have been conducted in the last years by CMRE on board the NATO Research Vessel Alliance, and using the innovative CMRE Littoral Ocean Observatory Network (LOON), which facilitates experimentation of marine robots’ mission-base teams by creating a monitoring acoustic network with tripods of underwater communications equipment sitting on the seabed but accessible by users across the world via web.
