This paper is concerned with the localization problem of a source belonging to a domain monitored by a network of detectors. A mathematical model is proposed within an inverse problem framework which is based on the maximum information entropy principle. Specifically the connection between the measurements released by the detectors and the sources is obtained by assuming that each detector has a visibility domain which is modeled by introducing a visibility function. A computational sensitivity analysis is performed on the number of detectors and on the visibility functions. The results are of great interest in the applied sciences.
