Paper Abstract

Based on non-regenerative relays, the bit error probability expressions of CSI-assisted relay and fixed-gain relays for high altitude platform multi-hop optical communication is given. The effect of the factors, including atmospheric turbulence pointing error and relay node position, on the performance of multi-hop optical links is analyzed. The simulation results show that the influence of atmospheric turbulence on optical links is greater than that of pointing error. The improvement of average SNR per hop and transmit power on multi-hop optical communications may be restricted by pointing error. Compared to CSI-assisted relay, fixed-gain relay is suited to more hops links with the condition of high average SNR per hop.
