This work provides a design method to achieve a specified probability of resolution for two target localization via a wireless network of proximity sensors. Proximity sensors simply report a single binary value indicating whether or not a target is near. The design provides the density and threshold settings to achieve the given probability of resolution for targets separated by a specified distance. Simulations are included that demonstrate that at the designed sensor density and threshold

Public reporting burden for the collection of information is estimated to average 1 hour per response, including the time for reviewing instructions, searching existing data sources, gathering and maintaining the data needed, and completing and reviewing the collection of information. Send comments regarding this burden estimate or any other aspect of this collection of information, including suggestions for reducing this burden, to Washington Headquarters Services, Directorate for Information Operations and Reports, 1215 Jefferson Davis Highway, Suite 1204, Arlington VA 22202-4302. Respondents should be aware that notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person shall be subject to a penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information if it does not display a currently valid OMB control number. 15.
