NATO: North Atlantic Treaty Organisation It is a military alliance established by the North Atlantic Treaty (also called the Washington Treaty) of April, 1949, by the United States, Canada, and several Western European nations to provide collective security against the Soviet Union. A key provision of the treaty, the so-called Article 5, states that if one member of the alliance is attacked in Europe or North America, it is to be considered an attack on all members. That effectively put Western Europe under the “nuclear umbrella” of the US. As of 2019, there are 29 member states, with Montenegro becoming the latest member to join the alliance in 2017.
Additive manufacturing: or additive layer manufacturing (ALM) is the industrial production name for 3D printing, a computer controlled process that creates three dimensional objects by depositing materials, usually in layers. Using computer aided design (CAD)or 3D object scanners, additive manufacturing allows for the creation of objects with precise geometric shapes. These are built layer by layer, as with a 3D printing process, which is in contrast to traditional manufacturing that often requires machining or other techniques to remove surplus material.

Both, man force and robotic machines will be used for the missionnTasks like deep-sea mining, energy exploration, survey of the objects found, and off-shore desalination will be taken up rigorously.
