Suppose a sensor has a single-glimpse probability of .1.
a. What is its cumulative detection probability (cdp) for 10 independent glimpses?
b. How many independent glimpses are need to attain cdp=.99?
The probability of non-detection per glimpse is 0.9, so the probability of non-detection after k independent glimpses is ...
In this solution, we determine the minimum number of glimpses required by a sensor with a 10% detection probability per glimpse in order to achieve a cumulative detection probability (CDP) of 99%.
