Paper Abstract

In this paper an efficient adaptive parameter control scheme for Multi Function Radar (MFR) is used. This scheme has been introduced in.5 The scheme has been designed in such a way that it meets constraints on specific quantities that are relevant for target tracking while minimizing the energy spent. It is shown here, that this optimal scheme leads to a considerable variation of the realized detection probability, even within a single scenario. We also show that constraining or fixing the probability of detection to a certain predefined value leads to a considerable increase in the energy spent on the target. This holds even when one optimizes the fixed probability of detection. The bottom line message is that the detection probability is not a design parameter by itself, but merely the product of an optimal schedule.
