Paper Abstract

The features of forming a signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) as applied to the pulse-coded information transfer technique through an optical channel are considered. To maximize a SNR and a range of communication, an optimum receiver resolution time (RRT) should be found and used. An analytical solution as well as an algorithm to calculate the distortion of a pulse, propagating through a cloud layer, and the position and amplitude of a maximum of a recorded signal have been developed. They were realized as an interactive PC program, which calculates the optimum value of RRT and range limit of communication for any parameters of systems and optical channels (atmosphere + cloud).
