Abstract
This study identifies the relevant measures of effectiveness for the evaluation of airborne imaging sensors to be used in search and rescue operations. This is done with a view to preparing flight trials for a sensor system to be developed under the Advanced Integrated Multi-sensing Surveillance (AIMS) Technology Demonstration Project. This system will consist of a thermal imager and an active range-gated camera integrated within a single stabilized platform, and will be designed to improve the ability to locate a variety of targets from aircraft despite low-visibility conditions. The approach proposed for the development of the measures of effectiveness is to partition the time required for finding search objects and to extract the measures from each resulting segment. The main measures of effectiveness identified are probability of detection, rate of false positive generation, and time required to recognize and identify targets.
