So I know that many of the current technology laser jammers use sophisticated DSP and other processing techniques to detect incoming laser signals and effectively jam them, all of which is probably way to advanced for even a skilled hobbiest.
However after reading several posts about the brute force method of laser jamming it seems much more doable. From what I have read, and correct me if I am wrong, it is possible to jam a laser gun if you send out IR pulses at a high enough frequency. Obviously for this to be effective with no detection circuitry, this sort of jammer would have to be always running.
I am wondering if anyone has ever tried this or could direct me to more information about this method of jamming? It seems like this could be quite dooable for anyone familiar with circuit design and electronics.
basically my idea at the moment is to construct a bank of IR LEDs and a high frequency drive circuit which constantly pulses them at say, 4 MHz or so. I know at high speeds and powers you can risk burning up the LED's but I figure with a large enough bank you could alternate which LED's are on and effectively lower their pulse rate. Another thing I am curious about is at what duty cycle is it best to pulse the LEDs. I am guessing something below 50%. But lower would improve upon the LEDs power handling.
This seems like a cool project which if given enough thought could actually work. If anyone could point me in the right direction or give me any additional information on this topic I would greatly appreciate it. If it does seem feasible I would gladly share the details of my design we everyone on here.
