Abstract : The U.S. Navy has taken an aggressive step toward improving the analysis and prediction of the performance of tactical sensors and systems at sea. The TESS(3) is one of three key components now under development which will form the basis for state of the art on-scene tactical support. Along with a high resolution satellite receiver/recorder and the automated Shipboard Meteorological and Oceanographic Observing System (SMOOS), TESS(3) is expected to significantly improve the ability of the tactical commander to exploit potential advantages which accrue from a quantitative knowledge of the surrounding environment.
