Abstract:

The year 1999 saw the 40th anniversary of the Centre and the 50th of NATO. The wisdom and vision of the founding fathers manifested by the creation of an undersea research centre for the NATO Alliance ... pooling the technical data and scientific personnel of NATO countries, in an effort to solve some of the problems that none of these countries had been able to solve independently have allowed scientists, engineers, technicians and naval officers from national research organizations, universities, naval establishments and other distinguished and respected institutes to work at the Centre. ALL brought their wide national experience and knowledge, a deep understanding of the challenge, enthusiasm for scientific research and most importantly, a shared belief in its relevance. Several hundreds of NATOs best brains in underwater acoustics, oceanography, signal processing, mathematics, physics and ocean engineering have inspired each other to excel supported by the expertise and ingenuity of technical support staff and the dedication of the small but effective administrative support department. They have made the Centres relevance to NATO outstanding and unique, under the policy guidance of SACLANT, augmented by invaluable counsel from the Scientific Committee of National Representatives. Although the Kosovo crisis prevented the Secretary General SACLANT and the Military Committee from being present as planned, the Fortieth Anniversary of the Centre was appropriately marked by a number of events attended by staff, VADM Manlio Galliccia, RADM Giuseppe Celeste and RADM Dino Nascetti, Chairman of the SACLANTCEN Scientific Committee of National Representatives, representing the host nation which makes an inestimable contribution to the success of the Centre and six former directors and deputy directors.
