The Multi-Sensor Integration within a Common Operating Environment (MUSIC) Technology Demonstrator Project (TDP) has been established to demonstrate a capability for surveillance data fusion within the Navy’s Recognized Maritime Picture (RMP) and to identify a suitable, scalable computing architecture in which such fusion can take place. In the summer of 2004, the Canadian Forces Experimentation Centre (CFEC) is undertaking a large-scale experiment known as the Atlantic Littoral ISR Experiment (ALIX). ALIX represents a significant opportunity to the Defence R&D community in terms of the volume of available surveillance data collected and the associated challenge of generating a Recognized Maritime Picture (RMP) from this data. The MUSIC project needs to establish its data collection requirements in order to take full advantage of this event. This report provides an overview of the metric that the data collection must support and an overview of past trial experience in support of sensor integration research. These metrics and lessons learned are used as the basis for the data collection requirements of the MUSIC TDP during the ALIX trial.
