The Decision Support and Risk Assessment for Operational Effectiveness (DeSRA) 2016 Conference Proceedings contain the peer-reviewed abstracts accepted for this conference. The DeSRA 2016 Conference took place at NATO STO CMRE facilities on 26-28 July 2016. Its overarching objective was to bring together personnel from the military, civilian, industry and research communities to discuss and identify environmental risks, planning shortfalls and ways-ahead to assist decision makers and improve operational effectiveness. These Conference Proceedings contain a total of 31 abstracts covering most of the topics set as objectives for the conference, such as: Recognized Environmental Picture (REP); Information representation, visualization and communication; Environmental prediction and risk analysis/assessment strategies; Decision support; NATO Environmental Functional Services (EnvFS); and Approaches for validation and verification (V&V). Researchers and industry were exposed to real challenges faced in operations from the military- and civilian-lead presentations. Besides the speakers of the 31 Abstracts published in these proceedings, additional military and civilian personnel attended the DeSRA 2016 Conference to learn about state-of-the-art techniques and systems on the topics of the conference. They also had the opportunity to make contributions and influence the development of these techniques and systems. A total of 4 NATO bodies: ACO/SHAPE, ACT, STO CMRE, CoE CSW, and 21 institutions/organizations from 10 different nations: 1 BEL, 2 CAN, 1 DEU, 3 ESP, 1 FRA, 3 GBR, 4 ITA, 1 NLD, 2 PRT, 3 USA, participated in this NATO STO CMRE-lead conference. Institutions/organizations, such as, ACT and ACO with keynote speeches, and, among others, NATO CoE CSW, the Italian, Portuguese and Spanish Navies, US NRL, DRDC, Dstl, Met Office, AEMET, Fraunhofer, Mines ParisTech University, Raytheon, made important contributions in the conference. Some of these contributions are summarized in the published Abstracts found in these DeSRA 2016 Conference Proceedings.

Maritime Surveillance 2009 (MS09) Experiment Post-Analysis Workshop. Ranelli, P.; Bryan, K. NURC-CP-2010-001. September 2010.

This workshop report briefly overviews the meeting presentations and lists major findings and recommendations from the two-day event. Eighteen participants attended the meeting, including representatives from NURC, MOC Naples, the Turkish Navy, ACT NATO, and the European Space Agency (ESA). The following aspects of the experiment were addressed: * Results of the operational analysis; * Network architecture and data collection; * Moc Operations; * Multi-sensor fusion; * Anomaly detection; * Analysis of AIS intermittency; * SAR ship detection. Further, an overview on the recent HF radar experiment in the Ligurian Sea was given.

Proceedings of the NATO Undersea Research Centre Non-Lethal Response for Protection in Ports Specialist Workshop. Kessel, R, Editor. NURC-CP-2009-001. April 2009.

NURC hosted specialist workshop on Non-lethal Response Technologies in Port Protection at its facilities, 1-3 April 2009. The workshop drew over seventy participants from twelve NATO and Partner for Peace (PfP) nations, representing a cross section of stakeholders, including national labs (28 % attendees), operational community (27 %), industry (32 %), NATO organizations (13 %). The presentations and discussions proved the multi-disciplinary nature of port protection on the water side. Topics focused mainly on countering small boat threats and underwater intruders, the readiness of new technologies, independent technical evaluations, the use of marine mammals for interdicting intruders, experimentation methodologies, unmanned response technologies, and entanglements for countering small boats. The presentations made to the workshop and concluding remarks are compiled in these proceedings.

Sea Mine Countermeasures: Exploring Neutralisation Options: Proceedings of a workshop on innovative solutions for sea mine disposal. Djapic, V., Editor. NURC-CP-2009-002. April 2009.

NURC hosted a workshop on innovative solutions for sea mine disposal "Sea Mine Countermeasures: Exploring Neutralisation Options", 14-15 April 2009. Twenty-seven people representing ten different NATO nations from the operational (military), academic, government labs, and industry communities attended the workshop. The challenges and problems in mine neutralisation caused by sea currents, surge, and other environmental factors were covered in several presentations. Since different situations require different options, participants concluded that there is a need for a toolbox of modular autonomous systems. New candidate technologies for effective remote delivery of mine neutralisation weapons were reviewed, including non-traditional (non-explosive) approaches. The focus was on lowering costs without sacrificing key performance, especially in countering modern sea mines. Remote mine neutralization options may also be utilised in areas where conventional mine disposal systems are ineffective due to constraints of water depth or manoeuvering room. The workshop also identified partners for collaborative research and the establishment of a joint research project (JRP) on this topic. The presentations made to the workshop and the summary are compiled in these proceedings.

default Proceedings of the NURC Underwater Intruder Workshop

Proceedings of the NURC Underwater Intruder Workshop. NURC-CP-2006-002. July 2006.

Projects in harbour protection are getting underway in several NATO nations. To augment the value for NATO of these efforts NURC has undertaken to coordinate a Joint Research Project (JRP), for information exchange, threat analysis, and concept development, as well as for collaborative development, testing, and evaluation of emerging technologies. NURC hosted an Underwater Intruder Workshop to bring prospective JRP partners together, to present work underway and planned in member-country programs and to identify common work elements for future collaboration. Twenty-seven participants from eight countries (Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, United Kingdom, United States) and NURC attended. These are the presentations and records of discussion from that workshop.
