Paper Abstract

The Navy and the Marine Corps have been continually concerned about the antivehicle and antiship mines. The development of effective minefield detection procedures are of great importance as they will enhance the ability of the Navy and the Marine Corps to perform their tasks safely. The need for effective minefield detection procedures based on tests of randomness have been addressed by navy researchers. In this article we present a survey of recent results in the area of one and two dimensional discrete scan statistics and discuss the relevance of these results to minefield detection. The testing procedures based on the discrete scan statistics rely heavily on accurate approximations of their distributions. A brief survey of the methods employed to arrive at these approximations is presented. Numerical results illustrating the use of the testing procedures based on the discrete scan statistics are given. Directions for future research are presented as well.
