Performance analysis of echolocation systems requires the probability density function (pdf) or survival function of a matched filter output. A method is presented to derive approximations to these functions using a Pade approximation to their associated characteristic function (CF). The method is based on the Hankel transform. It allows computation of detection probabilities when the matched filter responses to clutter and a target are separately known. Several numerical examples are presented
