The signal-to-noise ratio for the multi-aperture coherent reception of lidar return signals from a turbulent atmosphere is analyzed. The efficiency factor of the multi-aperture reception has been calculated for different intensities of turbulence. It is shown that with a large number of subapertures the coherent reception is the most effective from short paths of sounding under weak turbulence and at extended paths under strong turbulence.
