Due to its high bandwidth spectrum, Free-Space-Optical (FSO) communication has the potential to bridge the capacity gap between backbone fiber links and mobile ad-hoc links, especially in the last-mile. Though FSO can solve the wireless capacity problem, it brings new challenges such as frequent disruption of wireless communication links (intermittent connectivity) and the line-of-sight (LOS) requirements. In this paper, we study a multi-transceiver spherical FSO structure as a basic building block for enabling optical spectrum in mobile ad-hoc networking. We outline optimal designs of such multi-transceiver subsystems such that coverage is maximized and crosstalk among neighboring transceivers is minimized. We propose a low-level packaging architecture capable of handling hundreds of transceivers on a single structure. We also present MANET transport performance over such multi-element mobile FSO structures in comparison to legacy RF-based MANETs.
