Stop and Look Detection Algorithm
Andrus, Alvin F.
MetadataShow full item record
The Stop and Look Detection Algorithm is a procedure for computing the cumulative probability of detection as a function of time for a searcher looking discretely for an evading target. The assumptions required for computation are: target detection is deterministic, i.e., cookie cutter, the target leaves datum on a random fixed course at constant velocity, the searcher travels at constant velocity and the searcher stops and looks for the target leaves datum on a random fixed course at constant velocity, the searcher travels at constant velocity and the searcher stops and looks for the target at predetermined search points. This report contains a description of the algorithm, the IBM-PC BASIC Program for cmputation and several examples. Additional keywords: BASIC programming language; Computer graphics. (Author)

The problem uses a Markov action model in discrete time and space ...

Martins, Gustavo H. A. (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1993-03);We consider the problem of a searcher trying to detect a target that moves among a finite set of cells, C= 1,...,N, in discrete time, according to a specified Markov process. In each time period the searcher chooses one ...
