The level of object detection allows for effortless conversion to optimisation problem of monitored area coverage. Development of such task enables such dis-tribution of observatory stations that maintains the detection rate higher than the assumed value. An appropri-ate rate level is achieved by covering the analysed set of points with sufficient number of radar stations. Combining evidence allows for calculating corresponding parameters for each set of observing equipment.}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Ships Monitoring System, Observatory Station, Location Science, Facility Location, Marine Traffic Engineering (MTE), Mathematical Theory of Evidence (MTE), Observatory Stations Distribution, Gulf of Gdansk} }
