Geo-regioning is an approach to localize Ultra- Wideband transmitters by means of their signatures. Recently, the principle feasibility of this approach has been shown and a first geo-regioning algorithm was presented. In this paper we derive the optimum receiver for the underlying Gaussian assumption and we show that our initial algorithm performs almost optimal. We discuss the pairwise error performance deciding between two regions and show the impact of the number of available samples.We derive an approximation for the pairwise error probability which allows to investigate the impact of many performance parameters more easily and profoundly.
