Abstract : The Systems Effectiveness Analyzer (SEA) is a weapon system effectiveness measuring system which is based primarily upon the utilization of existing equipment (controllers and peripherals) supplemented by the additional software required to enhance existing AMRL capabilities to evaluate simulated weapon systems. The SEA System has two major functions. First to checkout, control, monitor and perform statistical analyses associated with tracking simulators. Second, to provide an estimation of weapon system effectiveness. The weapon system includes the human tracker as its principal sensor of target motion. The metrics used to evaluate weapon system performance are the weapon's round-by-round probability of kill and the resulting target's probability of survival. Angular error statistics are used to evaluate tracker performance. The report describes the SEA system functions and interfaces and discusses the models used for the analysis of system effectiveness.
