The authors address the problem of communication structure planning in multisensor detection systems under communication constraints and also under a generalised cost formulation. The communication constraint is specified in terms of the amount of communication allowed in the system, while the generalised cost functions measure the efficiency of communication used. System optimisation algorithms are developed for both criteria. Examples for both Bayesian and Neyman-Pearson formulations are presented for illustration. A variety of scenarios are considered to study their effect on system performance.
