Some really interesting thoughts and ideas have been bounced around and I am starting to think that we have been overlooking the obvious... We have all asked about doing testing with wide angle, onramp, and overpass shots. The more I think about how our jammers are installed the more I am thinking that we maybe killing ourselves.
With jammer heads aligned and leveled straight ahead I see little opportunity for our jammers to actually jam lidar shots that aren't relatively straight on shots(IE directly from the shoulder of the road). Too many times the LEO isn't sitting on the shoulder of the road, but on side roads, in the media, on a overpass, or on an onramp/offramp.
So the question is can we address the wide angles of shots and be effective? Since we know the jammer head beam really isn't that wide, can we effectively angle the heads to address these shots? Is there really a solution for the overpass/on/off ramp shots? Mounting heads in the window of the car? I don't know, but woud love to hear your ideas. Unless the jammer manufacturers come up with some sort of prisim to spread the spectrum at angles similar to what we have seen with the lense in the V1 I am not sure we can effectively jam these shots. Thoughts?
