Paper Abstract

One of the activities being undertaken in the Free-Space Optical Communications Program of the European Space Agency, is a detailed description of the Link Budget for Laser Communications through the atmosphere. A link budget model definition, for a system using a tracking system with a given probability of failure shall be presented here, as well as an application to a ground station to/from the geostationary ARTEMIS satellite optical link.
