Abstract : A mathematical model describing the detection activities of an integrated sensor array containing radars, visual devices and remote sensors is presented. Using the programmed model, infiltration of a base defense area issimulated with a computer and results are obtained for various array deployment schemes. A comparative analysis of these results is conducted using game and decision theory and a general conclusion concerning an optimal sensor deployment doctrine is derived. The complete computer program is described in the text of the study and is contained as an appendix. (Author)
