Original Abstract

The paper presents a study of the availability of Free Space Optical communication links based on data obtained by longterm measurement. Visibility records collected from 210 European airports were analyzed to obtain a realistic estimation of the availability of wireless optical technology. Commercially available optical links operate mostly in the 850nm waveband, where the influence of the atmosphere on the optical beam and on the visible light is similar. The model used characterizes both the statistical properties of fade depths and the statistical properties of individual fade durations. Results are presented for selected European cities.
