The transmission of a free-space optical (FSO) beam through the atmosphere is influenced by several factors: chief among them are weather conditions such as fog, rain, and snow. In the design of FSO communication systems, it is necessary to determine the weather dependence of the system and derive a relation between the weather parameters and performance of the FSO communication systems. From our experiments, we have established that the link-operating rate, which is an important parameter for… CONTINUE READING
