The performance of intelligent unmanned systems (UMS) must be able to be measured to ensure that they can meet the operational requirements. A generic framework to enable capturing and organizing the performance metrics are highly desirable. In this framework, we describe that UMS performance can be attributed to the missions that it is commanded to perform, the environments that the missions are to be performed in, and the capabilities of the system itself. These attributes constitute a "three-axis" UMS performance metrics model. This framework, once further populated, can benefit the UMS community by allowing capturing the UMS performance, from the technical and operational perspective.
