An investigation to re-evaluate the current use in military applications of the ADM-300 Multi-Functional Survey Instrument and its requirements are provided. This paper outlines a method to upgrade the ADM-300 due to its eventual obsolescence using newly developed requirements that meet the original justification for use in the USAF in 1992. The capabilities and features of various detectors are analyzed and compared to the ADM-300. Response curves are generated using Monte Carlo simulations. The detectors are prioritized based on their performance to create metrics. A metanalysis of the metrics is conducted to limit bias within the process and justify their application in various military scenarios. The Colibri platform is the recommended replacement for the ADM-300 based on the method presented.
