Evaluating the effectiveness of fusion systems in a multi-sensor, multi-platform environment has historically been a
tedious and time-consuming process. Typically it has been necessary to perform data collection and analysis in different
code baselines, which requires error-prone data format conversions and manual spatial-temporal data registration. The
Metrics Assessment System (MAS) has been developed to provide automated, real-time metrics calculation and display.
MAS presents metrics in tables, graphs, and overlays within a tactical display. Comparative assessments are based on
truth tracks, including position, velocity, and classification information. The system provides tabular history drill-down
for each metric and each track. MAS, which is currently being evaluated on anti-submarine warfare scenarios, can be a
valuable tool both in objective evaluation performance of tracking and fusion algorithms and in identifying asset and
target interactions that cause the fused tracks to generate from the true ones.
