This paper investigates the performance of a recently proposed control algorithm for mobile FSO node alignment through experimental methods. The performance is evaluated on coverage area at the receiver plane, the link recapturing time and the connection up-time during tracking. The dependence of performance on the transmitted power, switching time and the threshold power for beam steering was examined. The results show that the optical tracking system successfully recovered and maintained the link while the receiver was in motion and the signal coverage at the target area was enhanced significantly.
