The signal detection problem when multiple sensors are used for surveillance and a global decision is desired is considered. Local decisions are fed into a data fusion center where a global decision is obtained using a fusion rule. The Neyman-Pearson criterion is used for system optimization. Two problems are considered. The first is to design the decision rules at the individual detectors when the fusion rule is given. The second is to find the optimum fusion rule, knowing the decision rules at the detectors.
