Espresso(m) - User Guide. Gary L. Davies ; Elizabeth P. Signell. NURC-SP-2006-002. March 2006.

Trials conducted over several years with the NATO Immediate Reaction Forces have demonstrated that Command Teams experience problems in quantifying minehunting sonar performance, especially in areas where the environmental factors combine with low target strength mines to produce difficult minehunting conditions. Inexact performance predictions result in poor evaluations of mine clearance which in turn lead to inaccurate assessments of remaining risk to follow-on forces in the channel or area. Espresso (Extensible Performance and Evaluation Suite for Sonar) has been developed to provide a standard NATO minehunting sonar performance prediction tool that interfaces directly with the NATO MCM planning and evaluation tactical decision aid (MCM EXPERT) to support planning and evaluation of minehunting operations. This User Guide describes the military version of Espresso (Extensible Performance and Evaluation Suite for Sonar).

Decision Aid for Risk Evaluation (DARE) Version 2.1 User Guide.  Karna Bryan, Elizabeth P. Signell, Nicole Arsenault. NURC-SP-2006-001. March 2006.

Decision Aid for Risk Evaluation - DARE - is a NATO Experimental Tactic (EXTAC 858) for assessing the risk to transiting vessels after Maritime Mine Countermeasures (MCM) have taken place. The NATO Undersea Research Centre sponsors the EXTAC and had been responsible for the last several versions of the DARE software. This document is the User Guide for the current version of the software, DARE 2.1 and will help both new and experienced users to better utilize the software.
