Abstract

Distributed detection on the serial (or tandem) topology is considered with the probability of error performance criterion. Previously published efforts, while presenting probability of detection versus false alarm results, limited the number of array elements to two or three. Here, for the detection of known, equally likely signals in additive, symmetric noise, we present simple recursive expressions for the threshold values and the performance of the system. Examples for known signals in Gaussian and Laplacian noise show the degradation in performance due to the array structure. © 1993 IEEE
