I have always been curious about the sensitivity of Laser Jammer heads... especially LI heads because of the bubbles over the sensors. From what I read, the bubbles help focus the infrared into the diodes.
Now I am not sure about exactly how to ask my question, but I will try to do the best I can. I used a Mustang Gt in the photo below to help describe what I am talking about.
From the center of the license plate to the bottom corners of the grill, I think it is about 18 to 20 inches. Now at 1000 feet, the typical beam size of a Lidar is about 36 inches wide. Pretend that it is being aimed at the license plate at that distance, being held steady, and center. At that range, I picture the beam being barely wide enough to tough the sensors. And the closer the car gets, the smaller and less likely to touch the sensors.
Now owning a Lidar gun, seeing many videos of tests, and having personally done many tests, I noticed that the Laser Jammers (especially LI) are still able to pick up a signal even of that beam shouldn't be touching them - which I assume is scatter. So I am wondering if Lidar's do produce scatter and how much that scatter can contribute to the Laser Jammers picking it up. Otherwise, the Lidar gun would get an easy punch through.
In the end, I am debating whether I should put a front license plate on. I would rather put it on because I want to draw as little attention from LEOs as possible. Yet I don't want to risk punch through. And yes, I know, Veil can help.
