Active systems and raster scans are the most popular methods for achieving the pointing accuracy required to form an optical link. With advances in vision system technology, a potential extension to current methods of alignment is to use cameras to control coarse and/or fine pointing acquisition and tracking to establish covert optical communication links. The narrow beam width of an optical link requires very accurate pointing capabilities that are not achievable by low-resolution cameras. This paper focuses on analyzing the feasibility for a vision system to establish a covert optical link between two terminals.
