Diversity Combining for Mobile FSO Nodes in SIMO Setup
The term mobile FSO refers to wireless optical nodes with mobility capabilities. Mobile FSO has emerged as a way to combat some of limitations facing FSO links, i.e. incompatibility of transmitters and receivers relative to movement and misalignment. In this paper, the authors utilize an angular diversity model for characterizing the performance of mobile FSO over atmospheric turbulence. Switch-and-Examine Combining (SEC) technique are their suggestion for the diversity combining solution in such unbalanced multi-transceiving configuration.
