I'm an electrical engineer and after my last ticket I decided it's time to design my own laser jammer as a project. I have some techincal questions though that I hope some of the knowledgeble people here can answer. Thanks in advance. Also, I doubt I'm going to try and sell anything I make. I'll make the schematic and parts list public if we get something that works
1) What is this "punchthrough" that everyone talks about. Is this the point at which the laser guns signal is strong enough to get a reading?
2) What is the power rating of the laser diode in the Lidar gun (it would be great if you could also provide the model of the gun).
3) What jammers on the market use a laser diode? What jammers use a IR LED array?
4)Does anyone know the profile or signal that the jammer is trying to replicate? I read you want a a few nano second pulse repeated at 1 kHz. Sound right or way off (I'm going to put adjustments on the prototype for frequency and duration, but I need to be in the ball park to start the design)
That seems like a good starting point.
