As this is my formal first post, I would like to say that it is good to see a counter measures community like this blooming on the net.
My main work I do "that pays the bills" is mostly animatronics and costume work for low budget movies and such. However I dabble in all sorts of mad scientist ideas and wanted to throw this one out to people. I am also interested in hearing from the Lidar jammer companies what they might think of my idea. Perhaps I am off the mark or not.
The basic premise is to increase the jamming potential of a product while making it hard to detect that you actually have jamming hardware built into the car. My Idea is simply this.
Many modular headlamps/headlights. marker lights and turn signals are made so you can easily replace a bulb should one burn out. My idea is to replace the plastic socket assembly for these bulbs (namely the headlights) with a translucent socket. Most (if not all) sockets protrude into the headlight assembly itself, By going with a translucent assembly and casting a 904nm laser diode into the plastic I can very effectively transmit IR pulses directly into both the headlamp assembly and or the body of the unit itself. This could also be done with LEDS in replacement of the Laser diode.
Given that the headlights are a primary target by laser/lidar guns, I could see this a being very effective for cars without large chrome grills or front plates. and would require only the replacement of the socket assembly. it would cut down on mounting time, Headlights have their own rugged alignment systems , And would be as waterproof and damage resistant as headlights are. But the best part is no obvious emitters to be discovered by a snooping LEO's and it turns the whole headlight assembly into a lidar detector as well.
I have the resources and am casting my own assemblies. I would love to however tear apart an existing laser jammer for the hardware to drive the Leds/laser installed and see how effective it is in comparison to properly installed emitters. And there is the matter of testing the setup( I don't have multiple lidar gun to test it ) . Anyone in the Atlanta GA area interested?
Just another mad scientist Idea at work
I am considering making these for sale, But only if it gets the Radar Roy seal of approval
