In the summer of 2006, Rick Toman and Dan O'Connor (NewSAR) organized a sweep width experiment and summit called "Detection in the Berkshires" at Mount Greylock in Massachusetts. The data from that experiment has been used in previous blog posts, but hasn't been published independently. Continue reading
Thanks to Mike Goodrich for this RCMP Drone story. In short, the RCMP spotted a stranded driver by using a drone-mounted infrared camera. We hope the FAA soon settles on good regulations for such drone use in the US.
When searching for an image for this post, I came across several works by E.B. Banning applying search theory to archaeology: Sweep widths and the detection of artifacts in archaeological survey. (2011) [Science Direct] Detection functions for archaeological survey (2006). … Continue reading
In the previous post, we began to build a theory of detection over time as the result of a very large number of independent glimpses. By assuming the environment to be fixed for awhile, we moved all the environmental factors … Continue reading
We begin a four-part gentle introduction to search theory. Our topic is visual detection of targets by land searchers. Today we summarize Koopman Chapter 3, constructing the useful "inverse cube" detection model by starting from instantaneous glimpses with tiny detection … Continue reading
