In this paper, distributed constant level detection in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) is investigated. The permuted linear model with a scalar parameter and additive heteroscedastic Gaussian noise is introduced, where the associations between the observations and the sensors are assumed to be unknown. Several detectors such as the approximations of the generalized likelihood ratio test (GLRT) detector, mean detector, and energy detector are proposed, and their receiver operating
