The Canadian Forces Experimentation Centre is tasked with Concept Development and Experimentation (CD&E), which is contributing to the transformation of the forces. Strategy 2000 indicates the goal of the transformation, and the Canadian Joint Task List specifies the capability areas that require CD&E. Information and Intelligence (I2 is the capability area of interest to the Pacific Littoral ISR Experiment 1 (PLIX-1). This experiment attempts to enhance I2 capabilities pertaining to a selected operations area in a littoral environment. An uninhabited aerial vehicle shall survey the littoral operations area with its sensors. Level-1 analysis shall use the radar and camera data to generate a tactical-level operating picture and post selected information and images to a website. Higher-level analysis shall fuse the tactical-level operating picture with the Recognised Maritime Picture (RMP) to generate an Experimental RMP (XRMP). The measure of effectiveness of this I2 experiment shall be based upon the completeness of the XRMP relative to the ordinary RMP. The completeness will be measured by a count of the number of positively identified contacts against the null hypothesis that the XRMP will not be improved. The measure of effectiveness is quantifiable and the hypothesis is falsifiable. The I2 operation shall also be assessed with a measure of force effectiveness. During PLIX-1, two command teams will generate plans for four assigned missions; one command team shall use the o
