Analysis of Rain Effects on Free Space Optics Based on Data Measured in the Libyan Climate

Mohamed O. Twati, Mahmud M. Badi, Adam F. Adam
Abstract— In this paper, the effect of rain on Free Space Optical link (FSO) performance based on data measured and recorded in the Libyan National Meteorological Center (LNMC) is investigated. A modified FSO link equation based on CARBONNEAU empirical model is used to provide a direct relation between the rain fall rate and the maximum allowable FSO link length. The effect of the heaviest case of rainfall occurred in Libya for the FSO is simulated, and the maximum allowable link length is obtained.

Index Terms— Free space optics, optical link measurements, optical link analysis, optical link rain effects.
