Paper Abstract

This paper describes the design of a wide field-of-view single-mode-fiber coupled free space laser communication terminal which has mutual beacon tracking system using a commercially available fast steering mirror. Using the terminals, we tried a low power laser beam transmission experiment over 500-m distance using a 1064 nm wavelength. This paper also reports the experimental results of terminal performance as well as propagation characteristics.
