Often to increase the probability of having a track that will not later be deleted by a radar some simple logic criterion is used. This thesis evaluates the performance of a new binary integration technique. This technique requires M hits out of N looks with x<M hits being consecutive. Closed form expressions for the cumulative probability of detection are derived and Monte Carlo methods are used to verify the results. A significant increase in the cumulative probability of detection is shown to occur when this type of logic is imposed. Also derived are the corresponding confidence calculations on Rb0 - Ros (a measure of radar performance defined as the range such that the cumulative probability of detecting an approaching target is 0.60-0.95) for each set of detections.
