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.

It’s all ready for euRathlon ‘15 - Grand Challenge! The international robotics competition will be held in Piombino (Italy) on 17 - 25 September It’s all ready for euRathlon ‘15 - Grand Challenge! The international robotics competition will be held in Piombino (Italy) on 17 - 25 September

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.

From 24 January to 11 February, in the Ionian Sea to the southeast of Sicily, three gliders participated for the first time in an anti-submarine warfare (ASW) exercise. During Proud Manta 11, NURC--a NATO Research Centre in La Spezia--successfully used the gliders to collect in situ, three-dimensional environmental data to support improved operational planning and decision-making tools.

The NATO Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation played a crucial role in enhancing autonomy and integration between Autonomous Surface Vehicles and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles as part of the ICARUS (Integrated Components for Assisted Rescue and Unmanned Search operations) project, funded by the European Commission.

CMRE hosted the 2014 sea trials between 13 October and 24 October.

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
