With all due respect to SML, I would take any such claim of absolute percentage of performance capability with a huge grain of salt.
Simple. SML's tests of laser jammers consist of ONE trigger pull at 1000 feet and ONE trigger pull at 500 feet, to determine their numbers.
IMHO, I believe laser jammer tests
, like those conducted by the Guys of Lidar
, are a much more accurate guage as to the actual capabilities of laser countermeasures.
The most descriptive and informative laser jammer tests, will demonstrate long-distance punchthrus as well as close-range punchthrus (on both the headlights and center mass) against a host of police lasers.
Anything short of that only serves to minimize
the differences that exist.
