Abstract
This research note documents a formalism to compute the probability of detection of a target when the sensor range of the searcher is taken into account. A perfect sensor is assumed; that is, if the target comes within the sensor range of the searcher then it will be detected. However, more detailed detection models could be incorporated. Several types of targets have been investigated. It is shown that the searcher can expect higher probability of detection than Koopman's law of random search. This work is meant for the ORA community and will be useful for the evaluation of sensor systems such as SPOTSAR or IPS.
