Abstract:

The Stop and Look Detection Algorithm is a procedure for computing the cumulative probability of detection as a function of time for a searcher looking discretely for an evading target. The assumptions required for computation are target detection is deterministic, i.e., cookie cutter, the target leaves datum on a random fixed course at constant velocity, the searcher travels at constant velocity and the searcher stops and looks for the target leaves datum on a random fixed course at constant velocity, the searcher travels at constant velocity and the searcher stops and looks for the target at predetermined search points. This report contains a description of the algorithm, the IBM-PC BASIC Program for cmputation and several examples. Additional keywords BASIC programming language Computer graphics. Author
