A modification of local estimation of lidar signals is proposed which increases the efficiency of Monte Carlo method for the small—angle reception at small distances from a scattering volume. A specific feature of the modification is simultaneous simulation of the forward and backward trajectories, the final estimate being weighted—average over all the trajectories constructed.
