Abstract
The U.S. Naval Research Laboratory has been examining propagation of a 1550nm laser at its free-space lasercomm test facility at Chesapeake Bay Detachment (NRL-CBD). NRL-CBD offers a ten mile free-space optical laser communication (FSO lasercomm) path over water. Atmospheric propagation data and as well as bit error rate and packet error rate data has been collected along the one-way ten mile link and a round-trip twenty mile link using passive retroreflectors. Long term 24/7 data collection on the one-way range at the lasercomm test facility (LCTF) provides insight into availability and packet error rates of maritime FSO lasercomm. Results from this study will be presented.
