Essentially a bunch of directional antennas would be more appropriate.
Mirrors/lenses and NIR/VIS sources when using optical line of sight.

Control logic yes, but nowadays you could probably make it a mostly
software radio. The largest problem is that you have to use a protocol
where nodes have geodetic coordinates (say, WGS84) for addresses, and
sufficient node density for it to work.
