Abstract:

This Test Operations Procedure provides basic procedures for conducting tests of vehicle and personnel intrusion detectors sensors and related materiel in any environment. It applies to testing of all types of tactical unattended ground sensors which work on the principles of detection of an outside stimulus, logic processing of that stimulus, and transmission of a coded signal to a readout device. Included are sensors which operate on magnetic, seismic, acoustic, electromagnetic and audio detection principles. This document describes methods for determining operational effectiveness of sensors to include false alarm rate susceptibility to undesired sources, detection range and a probability of detection, probability of correct classification and mission length data. Survivability of air-delivered or artillery-delivered sensors is also considered. Evaluations of readout devices are limited to probability of reception, transmission, and display of sensor messages. Common procedures such as preoperational inspection, physical characteristics, human factors, and camouflage and concealment are referenced as appropriate. Author
