ABSTRACT (Continue on revere, aide It neceeeary «d .'*»n"£/fcf'?^ "^"fnn rvhprnPtlC techniques . It A two-level surveillance system is modeled using cyoernetic tet-mn que:*, is shown that if system entropy is used as a measure of system performance, tssteSdy state average becomes a sensitive discriminate between alternative ontrol modes, such as between central and local control It a so measure the system's sensitivity to variations in sensor resources, their capabilities and the pSl cy by which'they are allocated. It is concluded that formation* ally derived measures of performance, such as entropy, are appropr ate for C modeling in many cases and that they can prescribe quantitative tradeoffs in a quite general way.
