Original Abstract

The paper deals with a fully parameterized model for Monte-Carlo simulation of data transmission on atmospheric Free- Space Optical (FSO) paths. Due to the effect of atmospheric turbulence the channel is characterized by signal fluctuation in the order of tens of milliseconds, which is several orders of magnitude longer than the duration of transmitted packets. For moderate transmission rates the FSO channel can be simply modeled as a channel with slowly varying random attenuation, which is generated by the proposed model by means of low-pass filtering a random number sequence. The probability of occurrence of errors in each packet can be computed using analytical formulae based on the generated signal level. The model has been implemented into the OMNeT++ simulator.
