Paper 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. It was shown 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 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.
