Three algorithms of the Monte Carlo method for the calculation of the pulse reaction in channels of laser sensing and communication are considered: the local estimation algorithm, double local estimation algorithm, and proposed modified double local estimation algorithm. Results of testing the algorithms and their comparison are shown. For the case of a homogeneous medium, the performances of the algorithms are compared. The comparison shows conditions for which the proposed algorithm has the advantage over the double local estimation algorithm. The contribution of double, triple, and higher multiplicity scattering is estimated. The high contribution of multiple scattering justifies the applicability of the Monte Carlo method for solving such problems.
