Free Space Optical Communications

Free Space Optics (FSO) is the transmission of data between points in atmospheric or space environments using modulated laser energy without fiber optics or other optical systems guiding the light.   The FSO systems uses NRZ, coherent or intensity modulation and direct detection to transmit and receive optical signals over ground to ground, ground to space or satellite to satellite links. Learn more.
