Minimum Detection Time Calculator
The following calculator returns the measurement (integration) time required to trigger a detection alarm. The true positive probability is fixed and set to 0.98, i.e., the source will be detected 98% of the time. The false alarm probability (FAP) can be selected among three different values. For instance, a FAP of 0.001 means that if 1000 measurements are taken, only 1 will result in a false alarm.
