Paper Abstract

High susceptibility to adverse atmospheric conditions can severely limit the use of free-space optical systems for critical applications. This paper proposes a new architecture for lasercom systems for proactive adaptability during adverse atmospheric conditions. The hardware and software components of the proposed architecture are described in detail. We also present an in-field lasercom test-bed setup, the wireless channel propagation measurements recorded using the test-bed, and the results to validate the recommended design.
