This study deals with the reception by quadrature receivers of pulse sequences of the radio-frequency emission against the background of noise, when the number of received radio pulses obeys the Poisson distribution, while the pulse amplitudes contain regular and random components. The expressions were obtained for detection characteristics of the emission subject to registration. The correct detection probability was analyzed as a function of the signal-to-noise ratio, false alarm probability, and the ratio of the regular and fluctuating components of amplitudes of pulses.
