Paper Abstract

This paper investigates the performance of a recently proposed pointing, acquisition and tracking algorithm for mobile FSO node alignment through experimental methods that include multi-wavelength operation. The performance is evaluated on key parameters including power availability at the receiver, switching time, link recapturing time, and coverage area at the receiver plane. The dependence of performance on the fiber-lens distance at transmitter was examined. The results show that the alignment control system successfully recovered and maintained the link at each selected wavelength while the receiver was in motion.
