Backscattered signals are always obscured by the unavoidable channel noise. However, by exploiting quantum physics recent protocols had been developed to enhance the probability of detecting backscattered signals in a very noisy environment [1], [2]. In this paper we propose a new detection scheme that is simpler in nature than the sum frequency receiver that was proposed for the quantum illumination protocol [3]. Signals are generated using spontaneous parametric down conversion (SPDC) and are transmitted via the simple modulation technique of on-off keying (OOK), while the receiver design will rely upon the purely non-classical Hong-Ou-Mandel (HOM) effect.
