Background/Objectives: The article discusses the requirements for optical information systems intended for use in MRSs, the necessary software composition, as well as sound technical solutions, which can be used in the development of OISs. Methods: The conducted analysis of the scientific and patent literature enabled to highlight the most promising technical solutions which are integrated into the proposed concept for the system construction. Findings: MRS operation requires the system agents to process in real-time mode large amounts of information about the environment and a high speed (over 1 Gb/s) of the wireless exchange of information with a network-centric control point and between the MRS agents, and through a large number of channels simultaneously (up to several dozen). For these reasons, in advanced MRSs the open optical channel communication should be considered as the main means of communication. Improvements/ Novelty: The proposed concept for constructing a system is based on the synthesis of ‘all-optical’ circuit of open optical communication and scanning system that is typical for laser radar systems.
