Directable Mirror - Sensor

Grand, high-tech name for a light detector used to calibrate the array. Two of these are placed a few meters apart around the desired focal length of the array (near the target(s) but not too near or they will fry) and connected to the central computer.

To calibrate a mirror, the computer sets the mirror sweeping in a pattern and records when it crosses each of the sensors. Once this is done the computer calculates where the mirror is relative to the sensors. Once the array is calibrated, the sensor positions form a baseline for describing the position of the target(s).
