This paper presents a novel analytical derivation of the false alarm probability (FAP) and detection probability (DP) for non-line-of-sight (NLOS) detection based on LTE signals. Position estimation in indoor or urban area with cellular wireless communication systems is getting more and more important. However, especially in these environments NLOS propagation causes positioning errors in the order of hundreds of meters. Thus, detection and mitigation of NLOS signals is a critical task. In this paper, we derive the FAP and DP on power-scaled detectors based on LTE multipath signals. The derivation considers frequency-selective fading channels taking sub-sample multipath interference, channel dynamics and initial frequency offsets into account. The results show a simple way to calculate the DP versus FAP. Simulation results verify the analytical probabilities for the WINNER II C2 channel model. Additionally, the simulations show the improved FAP of an antenna array at the receiver.
