rates have been developed and marketed, our analysis shows that these systems can be ineffective if the posterior probability of an impending collision given an alarm is low. Thus, alarm systems must not only be designed for high sensitivity (d') and set with a decision threshold ßf. to achieve a low false alarm rate (f), alarm parameters must also be set with a decision threshold ßm that maximizes the posterior probability of a true alarm.
