One of the primary requirement for the active microwave sensors of the Remote Ocean Surface Measuring System ROMS is the measurement of directional ocean wave spectra. The measurement accuracy requirements on various applications, which are relevant and essential to the Navys needs are delineated based upon their physical significance, detectability and physics involved. The sensor performance requirements in order to meet the required measurement accuracies are also derived based upon the sensors precision, resolution, and accuracy in the measurements and the percentage of confidence in the processing techniques. The merge of the measurement accuracy requirements and the sensor performance requirements, necessary to meet these requirements on measurement accuracies, clearly link the theoretical and experimental scientific capabilities with those of the instrumental development, in this important area of concern, and from this established linkage a meaningful compromise between these two capabilities can be conjunctured with confidence.
