A part of the theory of search in the presence of false contacts was formulated and developed. Some properties of searches, such as additivity and compatibility, that play a central role in the theory of search, were studies. The expected-time problem was formulated for the case in which false contacts are generated by real objects, and a method of solution was found when the number of false targets is known to be finite with a known distribution. Two problems involving moving targets, without the complication of false contacts, were formulated and solved.
