Abstract

The performance of a decentralized system with feedback is investigated. Memory is incorporated at the local detectors to enhance the system performance. The optimization of this system with memory results in a likelihood ratio test at the local detectors for statistically independent observations. Local detector thresholds are shown to be a function of the previous global decision. The system probability of error is shown to be better than that of the conventional decentralized detection system without feedback. The issue of data transmission requirements is investigated. Two protocols are considered for the reduction of data transmission. Numerical examples are presented for illustration.
