Paper Abstract

Motivation for the use of spatial diversity arrays in both direct detection and optical' heterodyne communications receivers in the presence of atmospheric turbulence is discussed. Procedures for specifying optimum receiver structures are described and the statistical characterization of the received field necessary for utilizing these procedures is presented.
