Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) is being proposed to replace traditional scheduled NDE inspections. This is raising questions about how to quantify Probability of Detection (POD) and whether the POD statistical methods of MIL-HDBK 1823 can still be used. The answer depends on the application, the nature of the SHM information, and how that information is mapped into a detect/not-detect decision. This talk will outline some of the issues involved in characterizing POD for different kinds of SHM applications.
