Designing an optimal video camera network for monitoring ground activities is a critical problem to ensure sufficient performance in video surveillance system. Several authors have addressed this issue in the past, and considered this problem to be essentially a coverage optimization problem. Because of its nature and complexity, this problem is considered to be a multiobjective global optimization problem, which includes the maximum covering location problem (MCLP) and backup coverage location problem (BCLP). We add another criterion that considers optimal target positioning. This paper outlines a possible solution and its related tradeoff.
