This work discusses optical scintillation and its impact on system performance in free-space optical communication and laser radar applications. It is intended for practicing engineers and scientists who want an understanding of propagation phenomena and the role of scintillation on system behaviour. The material should also aid design engineers in identifying limitations on system performance.
