Wireless Free Space Optics (FSO) is one of the most promising candidates for future broadband communications, offering transmission rates far beyond possible by RF technology. However, free space wireless optical channel presents far more challenging conditions for signals than typical RF channels, making system availability and throughput a critical issue. A novel design for an FSO system based on integration of ultra-short pulse lasers and advanced signal processing techniques is presented. Simulations indicate that the novel design promises considerably improved availability and throughput compared to traditional FSO systems.
