The Antisubmarine Warfare (ASW) Exercise Proud Manta ‘13 (POMA ‘13), which includes participating ships and aircraft from ten NATO nations, will be held from 23 February to 6 March off the coast of Sicily.

As in 2012, the 2013 Proud Manta includes again major scientific tests during the exercise: scientists from the NATO Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation (CMRE) are testing technologies and software that they have been developed for detection and tracking of submarines in the marine environment. In particular CMRE performs experimentation with an autonomous ASW barrier to protect a shoreline asset using autonomous underwater and surface vehicles (AUVs and ASVs), with the Ocean Explorer AUV performing detections as in POMA ‘12, and the Wave Glider, a new wave-powered unmanned surface vehicle debuting here for the first time in a NATO ASW exercise, acting as a communications gateway.
