We study the statement and solvability of observability problems in linear stationary hybrid discrete-continuous dynamical systems. Necessary and sufficient observability conditions expressed directly via the system parameters are derived. We consider linear observability problems and the dual controllability and reachability problems. The problem of computing the minimum number of inputs for which the system has a given observability is discussed. An example illustrating the results is presented.
