Paper Abstract

This report describes an availability model for short-haul optical communication links operating through the atmosphere. To check this model, to assess equipment reliability, and to determine problems associated with fog, rain, snow, and atmospheric turbulence, a commercial link was operated for six months on a 3000-ft path near Boulder, Colorado.
