In this study the performance of the Multilevel Coherent Polarization Shift Keying (M-POLSK) based FSO communication system operating over the gamma-gamma turbulence channel is investigated. To mitigate the turbulence induced fading, the convolutional coding and spatial diversity techniques are employed. The upper BER bounds are derived using the transfer function technique.
