Paper Abstract

The additive target model is used routinely in the statistical detection of opaque targets, despite its phenomenological inconsistency. The more appropriate replacement target model is seldom used, because the standard method for producing a detection algorithm from it proves to be intractable, unless narrow restrictions are imposed on the target model. Now however, continuum fusion methods have allowed an expanded solution set to a more general replacement target problem. We derive an example detection algorithm, to illustrate the fusion principles one can use to tailor a method to a particular performance requirement.
