MetadataShow full item record
Existing algorithms for computing the optimal distribution of effort in search for a moving target operate by producing a sequence of progressively better distributions. This report shows how to compute an upper bound on the detection proability for each of those effort distributions in the case where the detection function is concave.

Ryzhikov, V.; Grinyov, B.; Piven, L.; Onyshchenko, G.; Sidletskiy, O.; Naydenov, S.; Pochet, T.; Smith, C. (IEEE, 2015-07-01);It is known that solid-state scintillators can be used for detection of both gamma radiation and neutron flux. In the past, neutron detection efficiencies of such solid-state scintillators did not exceed 5-7%. At the same ...
Kalkwarf, Benjamin (Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2017-09);Search and Detection Theory is the overarching field of study that covers many scenarios. These range from simple search and rescue acts to prosecuting aerial/surface/submersible targets on mission. This research looks at ...
