Paper Abstract

Near the ground laser communication systems must operate in the presence strong atmospheric turbulence. To model the performance of a laser communication system operating in the real world we have developed an outdoor 3.2 km, partially over water, turbulence measurement and monitoring communication link. The transmitter side is equipped with the laser and the bank of 20 horizontally, in-line mounted light emitting diodes. The receiver side consists of two channels used for wavefront sensor and point spread function measurements. The effects of anisoplanatism on the point spread function and statistics of Fried parameter r0 are discussed in this article.
