Abstract : The paper examines a differential game surveillance-evasion model in an effort to evaluate an existing model, bridge the gap between theory and applications of the theory and to attempt to provide insight into further extension of theory. Escape paths generated by the model were plotted for the case where surveillance could not be maintained. Shortcomings of the model, most notably the lack of provision for the reacquisition of the Evader after escape, were discussed and suggestions for future models to accomplish this were made.
