An optical sensors web in a star pattern is formed and tested utilizing modulating retro-reflectors, where a multitude of sensors was simulated by a retro-modulator on a mini-rover. A CCD camera provides the multi-mega-bit sensor signal. Two-dimensional acquisition of a retro-modulator located away in the field, by a base-station equipped with a laser and a receiver was demonstrated while reading out data at 10 Mbps data-rate.
