Abstract: The centralizer algebra of the action of $U(n)$ on the real tensor powers $\otimes_\mathbb{R}^r V$ of its natural module, $V=\mathbb{C}^n$, is described by means of a modification in the multiplication of the signed Brauer algebras. The relationships of this algebra with the invariants for $U(n)$ and with the decomposition of $\otimes_\mathbb{R}^r V$ into irreducible submodules is considered.
