Abstract
This paper describes theoretical background and experimental results of an acquisition scheme for free-space laser communications. Mutual acquisition between two optical intersatellite terminals was simulated in a laboratory environment, and statistical results obtained on subsystem performance. Results show that the selected algorithm provides fast (several seconds in a flight system) acquisition with a high probability, and analysis shows the algorithm to be capable of such performance in the presence of a sunlit-Earth background.
