Abstract:

A Monte Carlo computer simulation was developed to model hypothesized electro-optic laser communication systems operating in the middle ultraviolet region of the spectrum called the solar blind. By assuming various source, propagation, and detector characteristics as well as certain performance parameters it is possible to predict the effective ranges and operating characteristics of such a system.
