We analyze the influence of parameter mismatch between emitter and receiver systems on the bit error rate of an optical chaos communication scheme. Intensity hyperchaos is generated in the system by semiconductor lasers with electrooptical feedback. We find analytical predictions for the dependence of the bit error rate with the amplitude of the various mismatches and the statistical properties of the hyperchaotic carrier. A good concordance is found with numerical and experimental results.
