Cooperative dynamic free-space optical (FSO) networks exploit the fact that atmospheric losses are distance dependent to enhance the performance of FSO networks. This enhancement is achieved by sharing the resources of shorter links among different nodes in the network. In this paper, two joint transceiver placement and resource allocation schemes are proposed to optimally place FSO redundant transceivers based on optimal resource allocation in cooperative dynamic FSO networks. Specifically, one scheme increases reliability and capacity, while the other increases reliability and fairness of cooperative dynamic FSO networks during severe weather conditions. The schemes are formulated as multi-objective and bi-level integer linear programming problems and solved using an exhaustive search to obtain optimal solutions. The numerical results reveal that higher reliabilities can be achieved with enhanced capacities and fairness using the first and second schemes, respectively. Furthermore, these improvements are achieved by using many fewer numbers of FSO redundant transceivers than those of random placement.
