OCIDS Prototype
OCIDS Model Prototype
I built this Foamcore model and retro-reflector to prove the viability of using visible light to demonstrate the concept of an Optical Combat ID System based on invisible laser beams. A Mini Mag Light, seen here on the right, served as the "Interrogator". The "Tag" on the left could pivot to show that the retro-reflector directly reflected the light back to the the Interrogator through a wide range of angles.
