OCIDS Prototype Shroud
OCIDS Concept Demonstration Model
This animated GIF depicts the demonstration elements. The Interrogator, on the right, consists of a cardboard housing with a high powered flashlight inside of it. The flashlight is operated by the Morse Code Key in front of the Interrogator. The Transponder, or Tag, on the left houses a retro-reflector, and uses a dryer vent to simulate an electronic shutter that recodes the light as it is reflected back to the Interrogator.
