Abstract

Chaotic modulation serves as an excellent scheme to enhance the confidentiality of space laser communication systems. Considering radiation and intensity scintillation, we establish bit error rate (BER) computation models for both an inter-satellite chaos laser communication system and a satellite-to-ground chaos laser communication system. Based on such models, numerical simulations are conducted to investigate the mismatch effect on BER performance of these two typical systems. For an inter-satellite system, radiation can induce great parameter mismatches. For a satellite-to-ground system, the BER only slightly rises due to intensity scintillation being a more dominant deterioration effect than radiation. Our work has good reference value for the practical design of space chaos laser communication systems.
