Abstract : Documentation was prepared for the Target Detection Routine (TADER) developed at the US Army Concepts Analysis Agency. TADER was designed to compute the probability of operational target acquisition (POTA) of generic military units scanned by opposing sensor arrays over a fixed search period. Computed POTA values are input to a CAA nuclear fire planning model (NUFAM). TADER is a deterministic model which employs an input target lucrativeness threshold to filter out detections not suitable for targeting. The TADER User's Guide is structured to provide a user with sufficient information on model input/output and operation to effectively apply TADER. Additional information on TADER model logic may be found in the TADER Methodology Description (CAA-TP-87-9), published separately. Keywords include: Target detection, Methodology, User's guide, TADER, Documentation, Detection model, and Sensors.
