Abstract
Analysis results are presented from the application of new DREV-developed methods for studying, analyzing and assessing the value, usefulness or goodness of the tactical information used by maritime commanders in decision making, in particular for over-the-horizon targeting. These methods relate information quality and system measures of performance (MOPs) to decision and mission measures of effectiveness (MOEs). Finer-grained processing of relevant exercise data than has been used in previous analysis techniques results in hundredfold increases in sample sizes; this in turn improves the statistical significance and accuracy of the estimated MOPs and MOEs. DREV model-based measures (MBMs) use simple decision models to assess the value, usefulness or goodness of the picture a commander uses for a decision or a mission. The results from two versions of DREv MBMs are compared.
