چکیده:

In this paper, error performance bounds are derived for coded FSO communication systems operating over atmospheric turbulence channels, which are modeled as Kdistribution conditions. Existing upper bounds presented in the open technical literature demonstrate some discrepancy in thelow signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). This limitation has its origin in the fact that the K probability density function (PDF) contains a modified Bessel function of the second kind, which precludessimple closed-form expressions for the error performance bounds. Recently, it is shown by the author that the probabilitydensity function (PDF) of the K distribution can be approximated accurately by a finite sum of weighted negative exponential PDFs. Based on this interesting result, in thispaper, a new approximate closed-form expression is derived for the pairwise error probability (PEP). Compared with theprevious published results, which are in the form of an infinite series or an upper bound that are accurate only for a certain range of signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), the presented PEP is inclosed-for, and is more accurate both for small and high SNR values. The derived PEP is then applied to derive an upperbound to the bit-error probability for convolutional codes for FSO communication through the K channels. Numerical resultsare further demonstrated to confirm the analytical results and also to show the good accuracy of the derived expressions
