The performance of an optical ISL, and in particular its tracking sub-system, is examined in terms of its ability to carry commercial digital traffic. To obtain possible criteria to judge the performance of the link, an allocation of 25% of the degradation permitted for the satellite portion of the link by CCITT Rec. G.821 and CCIR Rec. 614 is assumed here. It is found: (1) that the link meets all of the derived criteria if the average BER < 2.5E-8 and (2) that an optical ISL should have little difficulty in meeting these requirements.
