Command Decision Aid Technology (COMDAT) is a Technology Demonstrator Project (TDP) scheduled to take place during the June 2000 to March 2007 time frame. COMDAT aims to form the basis for defining the mid-life upgrade to the Command and Control Information System (C2IS) of the HALIFAX Class frigate. The overall TD program consists of developing an integrated Maritime Tactical Picture (MTP), which is being achieved through three development cycles. Defence Research & Development Canada (DRDC) Valcartier is a partner in the COMDAT project, whose part of the contribution consists of performing an independent analysis of sea trial data to assess the performance of the MSDF technology compared the legacy Command & Control System (CCS), conducting a sensitivity analysis of COMDAT MSDF parameters and algorithms to recommend improvements for COMDAT subsequent cycles, and providing scientific advises for Multi-Sensor Data Fusion (MSDF) technology where required. This report presents the work performed under the sensitivity analysis task. The main objective of this task consists of evaluating a candidate alternative to the Jonker, Volgenant & Castanon (JVC) association algorithm, that is used by COMDAT MSDF. This candidate is the Multiple Hypothesis Tracking (MHT) association algorithm, an implemented version of which is available in DRDC Valcartier's Concept Analysis and Simulation Environment for Automatic Target Tracking and Identification (CASE ATTI) test-bed. The report presents
