A dynamic optimal sensor employment system and method is used for searching an area. Each time the sensor in the search vehicle is activated, the dynamic optimal sensor employment system ("the system") determines which areas were searched at that moment. It does this by using a terrain database, information about the sensor state when it scanned (azimuth, elevation, mode, etc.), and a line-of-sight algorithm. The system determines this instantaneous coverage not only for the primary search vehicle, designated "ownership", but also for other teammates who...
[What is claimed is:] [13.]a first sensor located on the moving platform;a coverage history array where each cell in said array represents a section of the search area;a trafficability database having data to be used in initializing said coverage history array;an elevation database having elevation data for the search area;means for optimizing a scan by said first sensor in response to sensor location in the search area, said coverage history array, and said elevation data; andmeans for updating said coverage history array with information from those cel...
