The problem addressed in paper is that of pointing a transmitted laser to views off-beacon of target. The optical tracking system views a beacon on the receiving vehicle. Turbulence- induced angle-to-arrival fluctuations and beam wander is important in an atmospheric tracking system because of the resultant power fading and change for the worse of accuracy control of the vehicle. In this paper, we presented preliminary experimental results on the effects of wander and angle-to-arrival fluctuations, the efficiency of their cancellation using such a tracking system on the dissector and different construction reflectors on the target.
