A new spatiotemporal search for pulsed radiation with a single-channel processing of the photon flux is proposed. The algorithm allows up to two device activations during the observation of the decomposition element. Reasons for activation of the amplitude discriminator (AD) during the analysis of the time frame are analyzed at repeated survey in the next time frame. The search algorithm provides an extension of the permissible range of changes in the intensity of background radiation on 25…50%. Thus the probability of the signal skip decreases more than in 4 times in comparison with an analog that allows only one activation of the search equipment. For the correct detection of the useful radiation with probability more than 90% the median number of signal photoelectrons in pulse shall be more than three. Implementation of an algorithm allows to reduce emissive power of the transmitter by 5 times.
