    • Autonomous networked anti-submarine warfare research and development at CMRE 

      LePage, Kevin D.; Goldhahn, Ryan A.; Alves, João; Strode, Christopher; Braca, Paolo; Ferri, Gabriele; Munafò, Andrea; Oddone, Manlio; Sildam, Jüri; Baralli, Francesco; Biagini, Stefano; Canepa, Gaetano; Colombo, Marco; Grandi, Vittorio; Grenon, Gabriel; Mazzi, Marco; Micheli, Michele; Parisi, Gerardo; Saia, Paolo; Vermeij, Arjan; Zappa, Giovanni (CMRE, 2019/06)
      CMRE has been evaluating the potential of autonomous networked ASW using underwater vehicles through a program of sonar signal processing, underwater communications, navigation and robotic behavior developments and at-sea ...
    • Collaborative multistatic ASW using AUVs: demonstrating necessary technologies 

      Hughes, David T.; Baralli, Francesco; Kemna, Stephanie; Hamilton, Michael; Vermeij, Arjan (NURC, 2009/12)
      Many research laboratories and several nations are showing an interest in the 'underwater networked battlespace' in which a combination of stationary and mobile underwater platforms communicate wholly or partially by the ...
    • Heterogeneous underwater networks for ASW: technology and techniques 

      Been, Robert; Hughes, David T.; Vermeij, Arjan (NURC, 2008/06)
      NATO's research and technology objectives for anti-submarine warfare (ASW) include persistent scalable heterogeneous wide-area surveillance networks for the littoral environment. Network and system design considerations ...
    • Multistatic sonar: a road to a maritime network enabled capability 

      Been, Robert; Jespers, Stephane; Coraluppi, Stefano; Carthel, Craig; Strode, Christopher; Vermeij, Arjan (NURC, 2007/10)
      NATO's operational requirements emphasize interoperability of platforms participating in coalition task forces. Intelligently fusing data of multiple sensor systems and the development of adapted tactics are necessary steps ...
    • NEMO: An architecture for software communications research in the maritime domain 

      Vermeij, Arjan; Furfaro, Thomas C.; Alves, João (CMRE, 2019/06)
      This paper presents a high-level overview of NEMO, an implementation of a communications research software workspace with special focus on application scenarios involving underwater (e.g. acoustic), and other maritime ...
    • pOctaver, adding scripting language to MOOS 

      Vermeij, Arjan; Pastore, Thomas J. (NURC, 2010/08)
      NURC uses MOOS-IvP in a scientific research and rapid prototyping environment. Contributions to the open-source suite of MOOS-IvP software is readily made by programmers adept at C++ programming. However, the utility of ...
    • Real-time clock synchronisation in underwater acoustic networks 

      Vermeij, Arjan; Munafò, Andrea (CMRE, 2019/06)
      This paper proposes an algorithm for real-time clock synchronisation in underwater acoustic networks. The algorithm models modem clocks as linear functions and embeds the data necessary for the clock synchronisation procedure ...
    • Real-time underwater positioning and navigation of an AUV in deep waters 

      Tesei, Alessandra; Micheli, Michele; Vermeij, Arjan; Ferri, Gabriele; Mazzi, Marco; Grenon, Gabriel; Morlando, Luca; Biagini, Stefano; LePage, Kevin D.; Costanzi, Riccardo; Fenucci, Davide; Caiti, Andrea; Munafò, Andrea (CMRE, 2019/05)
      Due to the absence of GPS, navigation of autonomous vehicles underwater requires the integration of various measurements to provide the best location estimate. Usually in littoral waters, adequate navigational accuracy may ...
    • A robust, opportunistic clock synchronization algorithm for ad hoc underwater acoustic networks 

      Vermeij, Arjan; Munafò, Andrea (CMRE, 2019/06)
      The proliferation of deployed sea-going autonomous platforms, such as autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs), unmanned surface vehicles (USV), and sensor nodes anchored to the seabed, makes the deployment of true underwater ...
    • Underwater communications research and development at CMRE 

      Alves, João; LePage, Kevin D.; Guerrini, Piero; Potter, John Robert; Zappa, Giovanni; Munafò, Andrea; Furfaro, Thomas C.; Vermeij, Arjan (CMRE, 2019/06)
      A key to developing autonomous maritime systems for NATO is communication among data gathering platforms below and above the water. However, unlike the mature technologies that are used for terrestrial networks, underwater ...
