A low-cost man-to-man engagement simulator is described in this report. Rifle fire is simulated by an injection laser transmitter emitting 100 ns pulses. The essential components in the transmitter are a triple GaAlAs injection laser stack with a 10 W output at 810 nm, an SCR driving circuit, a battery and a single lens focal length 7.5 cm, F2 for beam collimation to 2 mrad. The IL transmitter is mounted on a M-16 rifle and boresighted with the rifle sight. Hits are detected by four solar cells mounted on a helmet, covering a larger than hemispherical field-of-view.
