Scintillation fading can corrupt a satellite-to-ground optical wireless links with burst errors. Rateless codes, suitable for erasure channel, are able to eliminate or to reduce these communication errors. We analyzed the performances of three different rateless codes in a simulated Geo satellite-to-ground downlink.
