abstract

The experimental results of an inter-orbit laser communication performed under an atmospheric influence is presented. The demonstration was planned so that the optical link was supposed to graze the earth's rim because of the satellite revolution around the earth. The trial was successfully carried out on 5th April, 2006. The measured experimental data are introduced to show the temporal behavior of the OICETS's optical terminal. The atmospheric influence on the optical link is calculated with a theoretical model to obtain a probability density of normalized intensity as a predictive value. The probability density is also estimated from the experimentally measured data. The comparison shows that the theoretical prediction well describes the experimental results.
