In no time at all we will end up with the need for multiple homing methods (as in a/c launched missiles) as there are many efforts on-going and focussed on ‘blinding’ adversaries' AFVs or low-flying helicopters by targeting photosensors in optical sighting systems either by obscuring sight at the target end or by variable frequency bands making interference impervious to filter systems at the other end.
