Free space optical communication between satellites networked together can make possible high speed communication between different places on earth. In this work we derive mathematical models of signal, noise, and approximate bit-error-rates of optical communication satellite networks as functions of the system parameters. The optical inter-satellite network model considered includes transmitter satellite, repeater satellites, and receiver satellite all networked together. From the analysis it is clear that even low vibration amplitude of the satellite pointing systems decreases dramatically the network performance.
