A detailed analysis of the detection statistics culminating in the calculation of the probability of error for various meteorological conditions and transmission ranges is provided. The analysis is based upon a system designed to transmit 200 megabits of information over a 5 kilometer range in severe haze with the realization of a 10 to the minus 6th power bit error rate.
