To catch an intruder: Part A - uncluttered scenario
Atkinson, Michael P.
MetadataShow full item record
We analyze an interdiction scenario where an interceptor attempts to catch an intruder as the intruder moves through the area of interest. A motivating example is the detection and interdiction of drug smuggling vessels in the Eastern Pacific and Caribbean. We study two models in this paper. The rst considers a non-strategic target that moves through the area without taking evasive action to avoid the interdictor. We determine the optimal location the interceptor should position itself to best respond when a target arrives. The second model analyzes the strategic interaction between the interceptor and intruder using a Blotto approach. The intruder chooses a route to travel on and the interceptor chooses a route to patrol. We model the inter- action as a two-player game with a bilinear payo function. We compute the optimal strategy for both players and examine several extensions.
