Abstract

Calculations are presented to permit range predictions of a CO2 laser communication system when attenuation statistics are available. Both TV and digital transmission are considered. In the former case, an AM–FM modulation scheme is used. Direct demodulation is assumed. Examples are given in the use of the results to obtain range probabilities based on reported propagation statistics.
