From 2 to 19 June 2014, the NATO Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation (CMRE), part of the NATO Science and Technology Organization, will be taking part, for the second time, in the 2014 NATO Coalition Warrior Interoperability eXploration, eXperimentation, eXamination, eXercise (CWIX) at the Joint Forces Training Centre, in Bydgoszcz (Poland). CWIX is a unique NATO event that allows systems and network engineers to come together to solve existing interoperability issues and explore shared solutions.
This year CWIX will be hosting fifteen NATO Nations, four partner Nations and twelve NATO commands which are bringing 175 capability configurations to conduct more than 3000 interoperability tests in the 13-day period. During the event, CMRE scientists will be testing capabilities developed in data fusion, maritime asset allocation and underwater communications.

The NATO Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation (part of the NATO Science and Technology Organization) confirms and increases its commitment to foster a new generation of robotic engineers.
In September 2014, in addition to the Student Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Challenge - Europe (SAUC-E) hosted for the fifth year in a row in CMRE's sheltered harbour, the first euRathlon sea robotic competition will be held the following week.
SAUC-E (9th edition) will be held from 20 to 26 September 2014. euRathlon sea robotic challenge will be hosted from 29 September to 3 October 2014.

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.

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 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.
