For some free-space laser communications (lasercom) links impacted by atmospheric-induced scintillation, the principle of reciprocity provides knowledge of a remote terminal's received intensity fluctuations based on measurements of the local terminal's received intensity fluctuations. We evaluate a reciprocity-enhanced technique using optical switching between multiple spatially-diverse transmit apertures to mitigate against atmospheric-induced scintillation. Experimental bit-error rate measurements are presented to quantify the expected performance of this approach in comparison to standard static diversity approaches. We investigate system constraints of this reciprocity-enhanced transmitter diversity approach, and identify candidate optical switches and digital logic for implementation.
