Abstract

The additive target model is used routinely in the statistical detection of opaque targets, despite its phenomenological inaccuracy. 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. Now, the recently developed continuum fusion (CF) methodology allows an expanded solution set to the general replacement target problem. It also provides a mechanism for producing approximate solutions for the standard approach. We illustrate the principles of CF by using them to generate both types of answers for the correct detection model.
