There are various light sources, e.g., lasers that are used in jamming and supressing various optical sensors.

Actually there is a wire-guided missile used by the Osa surface-to-air missile system for the exact reason that you suggested.
I have forgotten its designation and can't find an image of it now, but it somewhat looks like the version of the Saman-M target drone shown below. It's noteworthy features are the following.
1- To make wire guidance feasible, it is subsonic.
2- To make it subsonic it has a warhead that is about three time as massive as the warhead of the system's normal missiles (from memory); it has a shorter rocket motor; and it has a rounded nosecone (more efficient at subsonic speeds).A variant of the Saman-M target drone:
