Abstract : This is one in a series of algorithm analysis reports on work performed at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory for the US Army Intelligence Center and School covering selected algorithms in existing Intelligence and Electronic Warfare (IEW) systems. It focuses on developing a methodology to characterize and catalogue IEW algorithms, and comparison of different algorithms is discussed. The report does not provide a detailed manual for analysis and cataloging, although a specific method is used as an example. Rather, it provides the structure within an algorithm analysis effort can be designed. Specific schema are suggested for descriptive parameters, including a characterization by mathematical field and military application. The characteristics of evaluative parameters (accuracy, timing, memory requirements, operating environment) are also discussed, and analysis parameters and techniques (robustness, proof of correctness) are examined.
