Training is a process of imparting a particular set of skills to a target group either by having them perform an actual task until proficiency is gained or by performing a similar task until confidence of proficiency is attained. Doing an actual task may be preferred but many factors may dictate that this objective is not feasible. The armed services and civilian law enforcement groups must train to use their weapons but often weapon characteristics, expense and the availability of appropriate facilities dictate that some sort of simulation be employed. Eyesafe laser are playing a major role in this sort of simulation. Present uses include their employment as replacements for non-eyesafe lasers in determining the distance to a target, designating a target for laser energy seeking munitions and to signal the arrival of a munition at a target is a benign manner compared to what the replicated munition would do were it used instead.
