Abstract : A mathematical model is developed to compute the ORing loss for square law detectors followed by an ORing device and an accumulator. The ORing loss is computed using Gaussian and Chi-square statistics for a detection probability of 0.5 and false alarm probabilities of 0.01, 0.001, 0.000,1, and 0.000,001. The ORing loss is computed as a function of the number of channels ORed and the number of samples in the accumulator. It is concluded that there will be a large signal-to-noise ratio loss if integration is performed following ORing. (Author)
