[MENTION=2404]Vortex[/MENTION] I you had something like these in the correct wavelength would it even do anything? If so Im going to put one of those giant light bars across the top of a 911.
It sounds like it's used to illuminate an area in IR allowing people with IR goggles to get a better visual on things. Like how the old IR military stuff still required an IR light source.OK, help me out here. This spotlight from Rigid produces at the invisible spectrum. Are you still able to see what it illuminates with the naked eye or are there glasses that you need as well?? This would be great for boating at night since you're technically not allowed to use visible spotlights in the presence of other vessels.
So without a scope or binoculars, you arent seeing anything..............It sounds like it's used to illuminate an area in IR allowing people with IR goggles to get a better visual on things. Like how the old IR military stuff still required an IR light source.

Ive been looking at Gen 2 for monocular but they are pricey!!
Did you mean 904nm? So my main question is if the lidar gun is being blinded or overpowered by a non pulsed or reflected source ( I realize they will see an error or jam) and couldn't see their own reflected signal, wouldn't this give additional time to reduce speed? I guess this would interfere with normal parking sensor operation as they too would see this. My though is you aren't running parking senors, just some fancy driving lights. What's the harm in that? They certainly aren't illegal. I would compare this to the errors we receive on ALPs when driving directly in to rising or setting sun.The jammer shouldn't transmit at anything other than 940nm, as laser light is created through a diode specially designed to resonate and transmit at a specific frequency, and most current LIDAR guns should be able to distinguish their own signals, or to at least throw a jam code because of being overloaded. You could still see the IR light through a camera. Vortex has a great video on how brute force jammers work: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RYuqstFQ3BI but I think a big difference is that lidar brute force jammers send continuous pulses and not a continuous beam of light, which means that most of its effectiveness would be outside of modern LIDAR guns' windows for speed acquisition. As a result, it would most likely be useless against most modern guns. However, with all of that said, it's mainly theoretical and it would be pretty interesting to test and see results!
