The study has outlined the different correction codes based optical wireless communication channel and security management in free space optics communication systems. The used codes that are namely forward error correction (FEC) code, Reed Solomon (RS) code, and Redundancy check (RC) code. The output power, maximum Q-parameter coefficient and minimum data error rates are estimated with these codes with variations of input signal power and propagation distances. The performance of optical wireless channel is enhanced with FEC code in compared to other proposed codes under the same operating conditions.
