Paper Abstract

In this paper we present an overview of the laboratory configuration and provide details of the adaptive-optics and tracking hardware. Experimental results obtained using a variety of propagation scenarios are presented and compared with results from wave-optics simulations. In addition, we present results illustrating the impact of increasing beacon size and active illumination on system performance.
