Paper Abstract

A model is described for analyzing the effect of tracking errors on the performance of optical intersatellite links (ISL). For a representative link configuration, it was concluded that state-of-the-art diode laser and tracking subsystem technologies are adequate to limit link impairments by burst errors to acceptable levels. In the future systems with transmitter power levels of -1W and noise equivalent angles of -0.4 I./rad, the effects of burst errors are ex-pected to be negligible.
