The values (Table 2) for DSMA were interpolated to determine the smallest outbreak that is detected 2 weeks before public health response (using the North Battleford experience as a benchmark) at least 75% of the time.
When using DSMA, health departments can expect to detect an outbreak that affects 10% of the population 26 days before public health response, whereas an outbreak size of 1% is expected to be detected 21 days before public health response.
This report illustrates the trade-off between the false alarm rate and timeliness for an outbreak size of 1% for the DSMA and ARIMA algorithms (Figure 5).
The base-station controller functions as a 4800 b/s radio modem and also generates the busy bit in the DSMA channel-contention technique.
DSMA is analogous to CSMA in its operation, but the use of digital data detection provides much better performance by reducing the channel busy detection delay.
