Abstract : The problem of raid recognition, the ability to discern the occurrence of enemy movement in the midst of innocent background traffic, is studied in the context of sensor-oriented surveillance systems for anti-vehicular and anti-personnel surface operations. The principle variables are divided into two classes, those over which no control can be exercised, such as the level of background traffic and the characteristics of the enemy raid, and those over which control is possible, such as the tolerable false alarm interval and the surveillance observation interval. The effect of these variables upon the raid recognition probability is examined. (Modified author abstract)
