The very first long range test was completed today using the previously shown aparatus and the new target box:
The box comes complete with an LCD showing who shot you and two different sensors: one for analogue IR intensity and one for digital data receival. With the Lens assembly, the maximum range that data could be transmitted to the target box was approximatly 50m – by increasing the number of IR diodes, the power of the transmission should increase enough to multiply the range by a large factor. Although this range was acheived, the accuracy required was insane! Bright sunlight was not an issue to data transmission – although, that is in the UK.
