free-space optic (FSO) system, Málaga atmospheric turbulence channel, zero boresight pointing error, non-zero boresight pointing error, average bit-error-rate (ABER)
In this paper, the influence of a zero and a non-zero boresight pointing errors on the performances of free-space optic transmission over the Málaga atmospheric turbulence channel is considered. Closed form expressions for a zero boresight channel model probability density function, non-zero boresight channel model probability density function, as well as a bit-error rate over a binary phase shift keying modulation transmission are provided. Numerical results for zero and non-zero boresight pointing errors are graphically presented.
