Quantum illumination makes use of the strong correlation between entangled photons, making it possible to detect targets that break through physical limits. The Gaussian entangled state is a continuous variable entangled state with a high number of Hilbert spatial modes, which is currently a viable alternative to quantum lighting. In order to explore the target detection ability of Gaussian entangled state, this paper starts from the Gaussian entanglement model of Lloyd, establishes the target detection error probability boundary model under Gaussian entangled quantum illumination, and explores the optimal detection condition of Gaussian entangled state based on the detection signal-to-noise ratio and the number of measurements. The results show that when the Gaussian entangled state is optimal for the coherent state, the number of measurements is inversely proportional to the signal-to-noise ratio. Under the same error probability, the difference between the detection distances of the two states is determined by the atmospheric attenuation coefficient. The smaller the attenuation coefficient is, the smaller the attenuation coefficient is, the difference is greater.
