Channel Modeling for UAV-Based Optical Wireless Links With Nonzero Boresight Pointing Errors

The channel modeling of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV)-based free-space optical (FSO) links with nonzero boresight pointing error is the subject of this paper. In particular, utilizing log-normal turbulence model, the authors propose a novel closed-form statistical channel model for UAV-based FSO links that takes into account the effect of nonzero boresight pointing errors. Subsequently, utilizing Gamma-Gamma turbulence model, the authors propose a novel channel characterization for such links that is valid under moderate to strong turbulence conditions. The accuracy of the proposed models is verified via Monte-Carlo simulations. The proposed models are more tractable and suitable for analysis of such UAV-based FSO links.
