6065404 Training grenade for multiple integrated laser engagement system, Allen E. Ripingill, Jr., Larry W. Lind, Cubic Defense Systems, Inc., May 23, 2000, 102/498, 102/482, 102/355, 102/502, 102/513 - grenade has many LEDs on the outside. Many citations & References
6965542 MILES hand grenade, John J. Harrington, James H. Buttz, Alex B. Maish, Ray R. Page, Herbert E. Metcalf, Sandia Corporation, Nov 15, 2005, 367/127, 367/128 - "Asimulated grenade for MILES-type simulations generates a unique RF signal and a unique audio signal. A detector utilizes the time between receipt of the RF signal and the slower-traveling audio signal to determine the distance between the detector and the simulated grenade." This implies a special "grenade" receiver needs to be added to all players.
8312814 Simulated hand grenade having a multiple integrated laser engagement system, Eric R. Davis, Giles D. Jones, William W. Price, Christopher A. Tomlinson, Peter M. Wallrich, Jeffrey E. Decker, Raytheon Company, Nov 20, 2012, 102/498, 102/529, 102/482 - grenade has many LEDs on the outside.
