Long Term Irradiance Statistics for Optical GEO Downlinks: Validation with ARTEMIS Experimental Measurements
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research Letters, Vol. 82, 89-94, 2019
Abstract
In this letter, a methodology for the generation of received irradiance/power time series for a GEO downlink concentrated on small aperture receiver terminals is reported. The synthesizer takes into account the atmospheric phenomena that degrade the propagation of the optical signal and especially the turbulence effects. For modeling the scintillation effects, Kolmogorov spectrum is assumed, and the Rytov's approximation under weak turbulence is also used. The time series are generated using the theory of stochastic differential equations. Finally, the proposed synthesizer is compared in terms of first order statistics with experimental data from the ARTEMIS GEO optical satellite link campaign with very good agreement.
