CMRE is part of the consortium of the new EU project euRathlon which expands on the well-established SAUC-Europe underwater competition with land and airborne contests.

The new European Union initiative will create an exciting new Grand Challenge for intelligent search and rescue robots. The euRathlon project is a three-year effort, funded by the European Commission. It is led by the University of the West of England (UWE) with seven partners, including CMRE. Three competitions will see robots and their teams of designers go head to head in a series of demanding outdoor scenarios that mimic the real challenges of a disaster situation. The adoption of common standards for communication and shared concepts will facilitate integration and collaboration.

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.

A group of student officers from the Italian Naval Academy in Livorno visited the Italian Navy San Bartolomeo military compound where the NATO Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation (CMRE) is located on 10 April 2013. The focus of the visit was to deepen practical knowledge in the most recent cutting-edge scientific innovations in the maritime domain.

The initiative is part of a broader educational project built on the successful long-time collaboration between CMRE and Italian Naval Academy in Livorno. The new edition will also include a set of lectures at the Naval Academy on: operations research (asset path planning, decision support, sonar performance modelling), the use of underwater robotic vehicles in anti-submarine warfare, the CMRE multi-static tactical planning aid software and communications and networks in the maritime environment.

The NATO Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation (CMRE), the Science & Technology Organization (STO) executive body in charge of scientific research and technology development in the maritime domain, showcased future solutions to address defence and security needs of the Alliance by using unmanned vehicles connected through the "Internet of Underwater Things". It happened during the eighth meeting of STO Task Group IST-096 focused on maturity models, scenario definition and prototyping environments in cyber defence.

 The University of Cambridge triumphed over 7 other teams to win the SAUC-E '13, the 8th Student Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Challenge - Europe.  The team's AUV named "Barracuda" obtained the highest score performing a number of mission tasks. The 2nd prize went to the University of the West England with its AUV "Phoenix", while the "FeelHippo" team from the University of Florence took home the 3rd prize, both awarded for the overall effort and the high quality performance even out of the water.
The competition was held 28 June to 5 July 2013 was hosted for the 4th time in a row by the NATO Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation (CMRE), formerly known as the NATO Undersea Research Centre (NURC) at its waterfront, in La Spezia, Italy.
