Abstract
This study documents the provisional measures of effectiveness (MOEs) and measures of performance (MOPs) for the Northern Watch Technology Demonstration project. Their primary purpose is to quantify the ability of the suite of sensors at the Northern Watch Station (NoWS) to conduct maritime surveillance at a choke-point in Canada’s Northwest Passage. The values of these metrics should be determined from a combination of live trials in the Arctic and simulation studies. The MOEs and MOPs include the ability of the NoWS to detect, classify, identify and track maritime vessels, false alarm rates, and the impact of the NoWS on remote surveillance operators. Northern Watch’s adoption of these metrics will influence what data are collected at the Arctic trials. The metrics will also help to determine cost-effective options for Arctic maritime surveillance.
