For the first time two teams jointly won the SAUC-E competition, the Student Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Challenge - Europe. The ENSTA Bretagne team, with the robot SAUC-ISSE, and the DFKI GmbH-University of Bremen team, with
the robot Avalon, triumphed over four other teams at the 9th edition. The 2nd prize went jointly to ENSTA Bretagne team, with the robot CISSAU, and to University of Applied Sciences Kiel, with the robot TomKyle, which was awarded as well
for the "Best Journal Paper".
The SAUC-E Award Ceremony debutted downtown in La Spezia during the European Researchers' Night.
From 29 September to 3 October 2014, CMRE will also host for the first time the euRathlon sea robotic challenge.

École de Technologie Supérieure (ETS) du Quebec triumphed over 14 other teams to win the SAUC-E '12, the 7th Student Autonomous Underwater Challenge - Europe. The team's AUV named "SONIA" obtained the highest score successfully completing a number of mission tasks. The 2nd prize went to University of Luebeck from Germany (2011 Champion) with its AUV "Hanse", while ENSTA Bretagne – team Sauc'isse and Sardine from France took home the 3rd prize, closely followed by team AVALON from University of Bremen who entered the final phase as "best qualifier".

The competition was hosted for the third time, from 6 to 13 July 2012, by the Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation (CMRE), formerly known as the NATO Undersea Research Centre (NURC) at its waterfront, in La Spezia, Italy

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.
