Original Abstract

The paper deals with a model for simulating atmospheric Free-Space Optical (FSO) channel. Due to the effect of atmospheric turbulence the channel is characterized by signal fluctuations in the order of tens of milliseconds, which are several orders of magnitude longer than the duration of packets being transmitted. For moderate transmission rates the FSO channel can be simply modeled as a channel with slowly varying attenuation. It allows computing the probability of the occurrence of errors in each packet by means of analytical formulae, i.e. the simulation event rate is derived from the packet rate rather than from the bit rate.
