Abstract
An analytical cost-performance model for a ground-based optical communication receiving telescope is presented. The model considers costs of existing telescopes as a function of diameter and field-of-view. This, coupled with communication performance as a function of receiver diameter and field-of-view yields the appropriate telescope cost versus communication performance curve.
