Paper Abstract

The performance of satellite-to-ground laser communication is affected by the atmospheric environment seriously, so it is a key issue for system design and operation to analyze the link availability quantitatively according to the channel characteristics. Firstly, the basic concept of laser communication link availability is put forward. Secondly, the preliminary theory model and calculation method of geostationary satellite-to-ground laser communication link availability are established by analyzing influencing factors. Lastly, the link availability of 77°E GEO satellite-to-ground laser communication is analyzed, combining with the atmospheric statistics data of typical optical ground stations in China. The results show that, it is feasible to achieve more than 90% joint link availability by implementing two stations, or to achieve more than 95% joint link availability by implementing three stations.
