Evolving sensor suites for enemy radar detection
Computer Science, Interdisciplinary Applications; Computer Science, ; Theory & Methods
Designing optimal teams of sensors to detect the enemy radars for military operations is a challenging design problem. Many applications require the need to manage sensor resources. There is a tradeoff between the need to decrease the cost and to increase the capabilities of a sensor suite. In this paper, we address this design problem using genetic algorithms. We attempt to evolve the characteristics, size, and arrangement of a team of sensors, focusing on minimizing the size of sensor suite while maximizing its detection capabilities. The genetic algorithm we have developed has produced promising results for different; environmental configurations as well as varying sensor resources.
