Abstract:

Distributed decision problems arise when two or more sensors viewing the same phenomenon must work cooperatively to draw inferences about the observed situation. Typical examples are in target detection and target classification. Such problems are characterized by distributed processing of information and communication between processors over a limited bandwidth data link. This thesis presents some statistical distributed decision algorithms and describes the implementation of one of them on a set of loosely coupled multiprocessor clusters which simulate the distributed environment characterizing multisensor decision problems. Keywords include Distributed Decision Processing Computer Network Microcomputer Clusters Process Synchronization and Network Communication. Theses
