ABSTRACT
In this study we analyze the problem of searching an expanding area over time with binary sensors. This problem can be applied to scenarios where the searcher has the location information of a mobile target with a time delay and the target speed is known. We consider two basic search models, random and exhaustive, and analyze formulas to measure the effectiveness of search process in terms of cumulative detection probability and compare the results for both plans. We also derive analytical expressions that will assist the decision maker in planning and utilizing his/her search effort. The results are verified with Monte Carlo simulations.

    A challenging problem in radar signal processing is to achieve reliable target detection in the presence of interferences. In this paper, we propose a novel algorithm for automatic censoring of radar interfering targets in log-normal clutter. The proposed algorithm, termed the forward automatic...
