"The communication engineer has in the past treated the detection problem from a limited point of view. Detectors have been designed to reach a decision based on a specified number of samples. This approach has proved valuable, but it offers no provisions for an early decision if a conclusion becomes obvious early in the sampling. Neither is there an opportunity for additional sampling if necessary to reach a definite conclusion, because of these limitations it is desirable to find more general detectors. This study looks at a specific statistics (the sign test) and designs a sequential detector to utilize this statistic. The sequential detector is a type of detector where the decision to terminate depends only on the previous samples. This detector is also of the nonparametric class in that a complete knowledge of the signal and noise is not necessary for its operation"--Abstract, page i.
