Performance standards for detector systems often include requirements for probability of detection and probability of false alarm at a specified level of statistical confidence.
Software effectively fuses the individual sensor data to determine whether a biological cloud is present, increasing the probability of detection, while minimizing the probability of false alarms (a single sensor cannot cause a system-wide alarm).
We find that the probability of false alarms is minimized at around Risk Index = 1.
