Detector array effects are considered for a time-integrating acoustooptic correlator used for signal detection. Effects such as detector area integration, detector element, spatial response, and the location of the correlation peak within a detector element are included. General SNR, PD, and PFA expressions are derived as a function of various system and detector parameters. Quantitative data are provided for a Gaussian-Markov signal, and initial experimental confirmation is included.
