Abstract:     A light gun for use on moving vehicles produces continuous visible light for aiming purposes and selectable modulated infrared frequencies for actuating a target. The optical path through the gun is transparent to visible light while the infrared portion of the spectrum is modulated by a tuning fork chopper and selectively gated into the optical path by means of an infrared filter, the position of which is controlled by the trigger of the gun.
