MITIGATING THE INFLUENCE OF DENSE OIL FIRES ON FREE-SPACE OPTICAL COMMUNICATION
This study estimates the performance of a free space optical system (FSO) affected by air pollutants from oil fires. Simulations are performed to evaluate the reliability of optical propagation according to the length of the FSO channels under two beam angle angles. The proposed FSO system parameters such as the Q-factor, BER and reception capacity are successfully used to reduce channel loss. Results demonstrate that the proposed FSO link performs satisfactorily when the divergence angle is 1 mrad and the distance is from 0.5 km to 0.9 km. Q-factor and receiving power decrease when the divergence angle of beam increases to 2 mrad, and a link is achieved when the distance is from 0.5 km to 0.7 km. The eye diagram is used to evaluate and confirm the quality of received data. An eye opening is observed at 0.5 km for both divergence angles. Then, the eye completely closes at 1 km for 2 mrad, thereby degrading the performance. Therefore, these results can be conducted for similar systems optimization options by applying our analysis
