The surveillance of very dim IR targets or `fast-burn' targets, or both, is usually assumed to require the use of either staring sensors or scanning sensors with relatively fast revisit rates. The thesis of this paper is that a greater multiplicity of scanning sensors with relatively slow revisit rates often can be used effectively to achieve the required surveillance results. In particular, we describe conditions under which a dim or fast-burn target can be detected and tracked, and accurate tactical parameters can be computed for the target, by using as few as one observation per sensor per target.
