Gonna take a stab at this although I am no expert in this area - I believe k is the number of sensors and not i as you suggest. I think that Si and Sj simply represent two sensors.. sensor i and sensor j.

Si is initially used to describe the set of points: S1, S2, S3... Sk.
Later in the paragraph Si refers to any of those points. Sj is simply used to refer to any of the points other than Si.

I think blahphish is correct.

Si is the ith sensor located at (Xi, Yi)

Sj is a different sensor.

They need to use a different subscripts so they can refer to the
arrival time differences between pairs of sensors:  dTij
