Abstract : By means of a mathematical model, it was shown that the false alarm probability of a quadrature clipper correlator for a Poisson noise process is a function of both the noise bandwidth and the sampling rate. The same analytical technique is applicable to a wide variety of correlation systems which process data in clipped form. (Author)
