The quietest ship in its class, the NATO Research Vessel (NRV) Alliance was designed to minimize noise radiating from the ship into the water, making it an excellent platform for sonar testing and other types of research where a quiet undersea environment is essential. The 93-metre, 3,180-ton, openocean research vessel offers 400 square metres of laboratory space and state-of-the-art navigation, computer, and communication equipment.

Modelling & Simulation Modelling & Simulation

Filesize: 100.17 kB

Modelling & Simulation (M&S) is a critical technology for NATO and the Nations with applications to defence, homeland security and economics. Computer models are able to mime behaviours of existing real world systems, or hypothetical future systems. M&S enables experiments in a virtual environment with the potential to increase understanding and performance.

Counter-Piracy Counter-Piracy

Since 2008, NATO has been providing protection from piracy in international waters in the Gulf of Aden and the Horn of Africa. The solution to piracy, which may be some time in coming, ultimately lies on shore. Until then, counter-piracy includes multinational policing operations and fortifying merchant vessels for pirate avoidance and the prevention of boarding. The Centre addresses elements of these in several projects.
