Abstract—A hybrid impulse radio ultra-wideband (IR-UWB) communication system in which UWB pulses are transmitted over long distances through free space optical (FSO) links is proposed. FSO channels are characterized by random fluctuations in the received light intensity mainly due to the atmospheric turbulence. For this reason, theoretical detection error probability analysis is presented for the proposed system for a time-hopping pulse-position modulated (TH-PPM) UWB signal model under weak, moderate and strong turbulence conditions. For the optical system output distributed over radio frequency UWB channels, composite error analysis is also presented. The theoretical derivations are verified via simulation results, which indicate a computationally and spectrally efficient UWB-over-FSO system.
