Paper Abstract

Designers and consumers of various security, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) systems as well as various unattended ground sensors pay most attention to their commonly used performance characteristics such as probability of a target detection and probability of a false alarm. These characteristics are used for systems comparison and evaluation. However, it is not enough for end-users of these systems as well as for their total/final effectiveness assessment. This article presents and discusses a system approach to an efficiency estimation of the security and ISR systems. Presented approach aims at final result of the system's function and use. It allows setting up reasonable technical and structural requirements for the security and ISR systems, to make trustworthy comparison and practical application planning of such systems. It also allows finding forward-looking, perspective ways of systems development. Presented results can be guidance to both designers and consumers.
