Post-exercise analyses of antisubmarine warfare detection performance often are based on the reconstructed range between a sensor unit and a target. The ranges are generally determined from the reconstructed positions of those units although the navigational errors in the data used for reconstruction can be significant. This report presents methodologies by which navigational errors can be considered when performing post-exercise detection performance analyses. The included computer programs apply the methodology to hypothetical examples to estimate detection probabilities and sweep widths. A separate, classified addendum validates some of the assumptions and applies the methodology to exercise data.
