Default Definitive Sensor Rules for T5

Dear All,

I am looking to convert the DSR rules to T5. Before I re-invent the wheel, please let me know if it has already been done.

The T5 rules do appear to be influenced by the DSR rules, but there are obviously some big differences in the mechanics, certainty, and hard cut-offs in T5.

A few issues are MM's choice of a pseudo logarithmic scale with whole numbers in the space ranges being tied to orders of magnitude, and sometimes not. Also that generic target 'size' is the limiting factor directly for sensors (noting this is modified if the target is using active sensors) rather than features of the Target itself (reflectivity of the hull etc.). I have not seen Bruce Allan Macintosh on these boards, and undertand he is now at Stanford. I might try and get hold of him.

Just to be clear, I am looking to port the DSR rules fairly closely but this is not intended to spark another discussion of the current sensor rules, ( which seem to me quite well thought out and fairly fast play). I have already converted the T5 space ranges to 'Term' values.
