Threat Assessment of a Possible Vehicle-Borne Improvised Explosive Device Using DSmT

Authors: Jean Dezert, Florentin Smarandache

This paper presents the solution about the threat of a VBIED (Vehicle-Borne Improvised Explosive Device) obtained with the DSmT (Dezert-Smarandache Theory). This problem has been proposed recently to the authors by Simon Maskell and John Lavery as a typical illustrative example to try to compare the different approaches for dealing with uncertainty for decision-making support. The purpose of this paper is to show in details how a solid justified solution can be obtained from DSmT approach and its fusion rules thanks to a proper modeling of the belief functions involved in this problem.
