Infrared light is used for shooting your opponents.
All weapons have configurable settings impacting the amount of power going to the infrared LED, thereby modifying the 'shooting' distance of the weapons. The possibilities are:
- indoor - to be used for locations with mine of sight generally less than 30 meters. The indoor setting can also be used to reduce signal 'bounce' in area's with multiple reflective surfaces.
- short - indoor with a line of sight of over 30 meters
- medium (the default) - jungle, medium and dense forrest
- long - light forrest, open or outdoor urban location
Radio signals are used for communication between devices
The radio range of a SATR radio built int a device (with internal antena) is 40 meters. The devices which are equipped with an external antenna have a range of 80 meters. If your battlefield is larger, a radio repeater can be used to boost the signal and allow more efficient communications.
