Title: Performance Measures Framework for Unmanned Systems (PerMFUS): Models for Contextual Metrics
Published: July 31, 2012
Abstract: In the development of the Performance Measures Framework for Unmanned Systems (PerMFUS), we have established a multiple-axis performance metrics model for the unmanned systems (UMS). This model characterizes the UMS performance requirements by the missions that are to be carried out, the environments in which the missions are to be performed, and the characteristics of the UMS itself. In other words, we focus on the concept of contextual metrics and emphasize that performance evaluation and performance specification is based on context.
