# binaryintloss

## Syntax

## Description

calculates the binary integration loss, `LB`

= binaryintloss(`PD`

,`PFA`

,`N`

)`LB`

, in dB due to M-of-N pulse
integration. The function computes the loss assuming that you are using a square-law
detector and a nonfluctuating target.

**Note**

The number of detections, `M`

in the M-of-N integration scheme is
set to `M=0.955*N`

. This value is close
to the optimal value that results in the binary integration loss lower than
^{0.8}`1.5`

dB for the `N`

in the range between
`[5,700]`

.

`[`

also calculates single-pulse probabilities of detection, `LB`

,`PDSP`

,`PFASP`

] = binaryintloss(___)`PDSP`

, and
single-pulse probabilities of false alarm, `PFASP`

, which are required at
the input of the binary integrator to achieve the desired `PD`

and
`PFA`

. Specify the input arguments from any of the previous
syntax.
