Abstract:

Based on the wavelet transformation and adaptive Wiener Filtering, a new method was presented by the authors to perform the synchronization and detection of the binary data from the Free-Space Optical FSO signal 1. It was shown in 1 that the Haar wavelet with a fixed scale is an excellent choice for this purpose. The output of the filter is zero-mean and is closely related to the derivative of the binary data. In this effort an analysis of the work in 1 is presented to obtain the probability of bit error using a Bayesian ternary hypotheses testing. The analysis also results in determining optimum thresholds for the detection of binary data.
