From 22 to 27 July 2013, the NATO CMRE participated in the 2013 sea trials of the MORPH (Marine Robotic System of Self-Organising, logically Linked Physical Nodes) European Commission project, which aims to test multiple-vehicle coordination and formation flying based on echo-location. The trial occurred off the coast of Toulon (France) at the European Centre of Underwater Technologies, part of the French Institute for Exploitation of the Sea (Ifremer).
CMRE's contribution to the 2013 sea trials was instrumental in the success of the test as the coordination algorithms developed by the project partners rely on the ability to exchange data and estimate relative positions of the vehicles. With this core capability the Consortium (32 scientists from five countries and other eight research organizations) successfully demonstrated coordinated manoeuvres between four autonomous vehicles (two underwater and two surface) in a diamond-shaped formation.

The early stage of the European project ARGOMARINE (Automatic Oil Spill Recognition and Geopositioning integrated in a Marine Monitoring Network – www.argomarine.eu) has come to an end on May 6 at NURC in La Spezia, with the completion of the first at-sea test. This 3 year project aims at creating an integrated system dedicated to the monitoring of the marine environment for oil spills

From 4 to 10 July, 10 teams coming from 10 prestigious universities and 4 different countries are participating in the event in La Spezia (Italy).
After the success of the 2010 edition, SAUC-E (Student Autonomous Underwater vehicle Challenge - Europe) returns for the second time to NURC (NATO Undersea Research Centre), the event organizer. In this 6-year-old challenge, university students compete using autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) that they have designed and built.

On 21 and 22 November 2013 the NATO Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation hosts the TALON 13 demonstration, part of the NATO Defence Against Terrorism (DAT) programme.
TALON 13 is an international demonstration organized in collaboration with the Italian Navy COMFORDRAG (Mine Countermeasures Maritime Command) and aimed at security professionals.
It gathers experience from the integration of multiple types of sensor networks and non-lethal warning devices, in order to implement the "rapid contact designation and warning" concept.
During the demonstration a series of possible threats from small boats, underwater vehicles and swimmers/divers are simulated. TALON shows how it can automatically detect them and react to the tentative intrusion of a unit with hostile intent, by escalating its reaction capabilities from a simple audible warning to the use of non-lethal effectors.
