We consider the problem of assigning sensors to track targets so as to minimize the expected error in the resulting estimation for target locations. The so-called Focus of Attention problem deals with the special case where every target is tracked by one pair of range sensors.

We provide a complete complexity and approximability analysis of the Focus Of Attention problem: We establish its strong NP-hardness, and we construct a polynomial time approximation scheme for it.
