This thesis investigates the problem of aerial search for a mobile surface target. The initial position of the target is known, and a certain amount of time elapses before the search begins. The target has a variety of choices as to speed and direction, and the search aircraft has a choice of search patterns to be flown. The method proposed to solve the problem of maximizing or minimizing the probability of detection is the game theoretic analysis of various strategies available to the searcher and the evader. Four strategies for each are compared and evaluated, with optimal strategies, within the set of strategies investigated, being derived.

The searcher must choose one cell in which to search in each time period. The set of cells ...
