Abstract : In this report the authors consider the problem of detection using geographically distributed sensors and limited communications. It is assumed that the sensor observations consist of Gaussian processes, the statistics of which depend upon the hypothesis. The cases considered include known and unknown signals corrupted by noise which may be correlated between sensors. A variety of numerical examples are given to illustrate the features of different detection algorithms. (Author)
