Abstract
THE PERFORMANCE OF ANY "INNOVATIVE SENSORS" FOR SRT APPLICATIONS MUST BE QUANTIFIED AND COMPARED WITH EACH OTHER AND WITH CURRENT STATE-OF-THE-ART SENSORS. THEY MUST ALSO BE PLACED IN CONTEXT WITH THE BENEFITS/COSTS OF IMPROVED SRT PERFORMANCE DUE TO AREA LIMITATION TECHNIQUES, OPTIMIZED SEARCH/ROUTE PLANNING, ALTITUDE/VISIBILITY/SURVIVABILITY CONSTRAINTS, ETC. THIS PROPOSED PHASE I SBIR WOULD DEVELOP A SET OF STRAIGHT-FORWARD MEASURES OF EFFECTIVENESS FOR VARIOUS SENSORS, FOCUSING ON PROBABILITY OF DETECTION AS FUNCTION OF SLANT RANGE, UNDER A VARIETY OF CONDITIONS. THESE MOES WOULD THEN BE INTEGRATED INTO A BROADER MACROSCOPIC VIEW OF PROBABILITY OF ENGAGEMENT (PE), CURRENTLY UNDER DEVELOPMENT FOR DNA AND STRATEGIC AIR COMMAND.
