Abstract

Based on the results of work using the Poisson-signal method to solve typical problems involving signal detection and the estimation of the parameters of signals when they are received by photodetector arrays, fairly simple analytical relationships have been obtained that make it possible to determine the detection characteristics and the error content of the estimation that can be achieved when quasi-optimal processing algorithms are used. Similar relationships for versions of the algorithms used in practice are obtained by introducing correction factors. These examples, in which the calculated estimates are compared with the data-processing results of actual device testing, show that they agree fairly well.
