Abstract:

The objective of this study was to carry out a tradeoff analysis among systems parameters for two types of extended line-of-sight optical communication links optical forward scatter from the atmosphere and remotely piloted vehicle relay links. The general application of such links is the control of dispersed Naval task force units. An analytical model was developed for the optical scatter link and was found to be in reasonable agreement with limited field data.
