The Surface Warfare Development Group is responsible for conducting the Ship Anti-submarine Warfare Readiness/Effectiveness Measuring program. They currently employ a standard set of measures for evaluating the performance of shipboard anti-submarine warfare sensors. This research investigates several new performance-based measures to determine if they are more suitable than the standard measures for evaluating the conduct of anti-submarine warfare barrier searches. The investigation simulates barrier searches to determine probability of detection, calculates the proposed measures, and compares the two. The results indicate that the proposed measures can be improved. A barrier search algorithm exploiting target-relative space ideas is developed which generalizes the classical search theory results for predicting probability of detection during barrier search.
