First off, Happy New Year to everyone.
Secondly, I was curious if anyone has tried to 'see' the beam pattern from their Laser or LED based jammers? You can obviously use a TV remote to have your jammers fire. You can use a video camera to record and view the heads firing.
So then using both of the tools I just mentioned, could you say, use a fog machine or powder to actually see the beam via your camera? Just have the remote or LIDAR gun emulator constantly firing, and use the combination of the camera, smoke/powder to view where the beam is firing.
I think it would be a useful alignment tool, to level and aim your heads, in addition to using a bubble level.
