The larger of CMRE’s ships is now operated by an Italian military crew under an Italian Navy Flag.

On 9 April 2016, at the Italian Naval Base in La Spezia (Italy), the Raising of the Italian Flag Ceremony was held in the presence of Italian and NATO civilian and military authorities, including Vice Admiral Ignacio J. Horcada Rubio, SACT Representative in Europe, Vice Admiral Filippo Maria Foffi, Commander in Chief of the Italian Naval Fleet, Major General Albert Husniaux, NATO STO (Science and Technology Organization) Chief Scientist, and Rear Admiral (Ret.)

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).

On the aft deck of the NATO Research Vessel Alliance, sailing for the first CMRE (Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation) scientific campaign of 2017, there are two very similar robots. One is the MUSCLE vehicle, a very reliable prototype developed by CMRE for seabed mapping with automatic behaviour capabilities. The other is not just a twin: it is a recently engineered underwater robot aimed at testing target (typically simulated naval mines on the seafloor) reacquisition missions.

This vehicle is called CAT, aka Black CAT, which stands for Collaborative Autonomy Testbed. It debuts during the current sea trial GAMEX ‘17, the Greek ARIADNE Mine countermeasure EXperiment 2017, conducted on board NRV Alliance from 28 March to 7 April 2017 in the Gulf of Patras (Greece) and linked to the Greek-led exercise ARIADNE ongoing in the same period.

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).
