Researchers at Durham University are working with global satellite communications company Viasat to understand atmospheric turbulence in free-space optical (FSO) communications.

Leveraging a £200k investment from Viasat, Durham University will focus on developing free-space optics (FSO) turbulence channel characterisation for optical feeder links. This research will support delivery of a software-controlled telescope for turbulence characterisation, as well as prediction modelling.

Researchers from Durham University are embarking on the first phase of a project to measure and mitigate optical turbulence in the Earth’s atmosphere to support Viasat’s work in FSO communications networks.
