This paper deals with the probability that random linear systems defined over a finite field are reachable. Explicit formulas are derived for the probabilities that a linear input-state system is reachable, that the reachability matrix has a prescribed rank, as well as for the number of cyclic vectors of a cyclic matrix. We also estimate the probability that the parallel connection of finitely many single-input systems is reachable. These results may be viewed as a first step to calculate the probability that a network of linear systems is reachable.
