In this paper, the authors investigate the outage behavior of optical inter-satellite communication links. The main issues addressed in this paper are: source-induced fading, statistically correlated fading, transmitter diversity, selection combining, and equal gain combining. It is shown that the merit of combining is obvious when the correlation coefficient is less than 0.5, the EGC scheme gives better performance than the SC scheme, and the long wavelength gives better performance than the short wavelength.
