FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

The new Stalker LIDAR RLR built for the real world

Stalker’s new LIDAR RLR isn’t bothered by a little rain. With its waterproof/dustproof IP67 rating, the RLR isn’t bothered by a lot of rain, either.

PLANO, TX (Jan. 4) - Stalker Radar announces the release of the  new R Series ruggedized LIDAR RLR, purpose built to perform in real-world policing conditions.  The RLR combines a waterproof and dustproof IP67 rating with a new graphics display and has been tested and passed requirements for both shock and vibration.  Of course, the RLR retains the industry-leading acquisition time, range, accuracy, smallest size, and lightest weight for which Stalker is famous.

The RLR weighs in at a scant 2.3 pounds including the new snap-in, rechargeable Li-ion battery pack. The battery pack clips conveniently into the RLR’s handle and powers the RLR for 16 hours of continuous triggering between charges.  The innovative battery pack accepts more than 500 charge cycles and more than pays for itself in battery replacement costs alone.

The RLR captures speeding vehicles within a third of a second and over a standard distance exceeding 3,600.  For larger reflective moving vehicles, the RLR’s range extends to 9,000 feet or more. The RLR measures speeds from 1 to 299 miles per hour with verified accuracy of ±1 unit and operates from -22°F to 140°F.

The new full-character LCD display provides a clearer user interface.  The simple, operator-programmable menu system makes it the most user-friendly laser on the market.

The RLR features Stalker’s exclusive C-Thru Technology™ Auto Obstruction Mode. Targets that are partially obscured by objects – bushes, trees, fences, utility poles, guy wires, etc., up to 800 feet away – can be automatically tracked and identified with the Auto Obstruction Mode. This gives the officer more location choices when setting up to monitor traffic. C-Thru Technology “learns” where the obstructions are and ignores them, tracking only vehicles within the enforcement zone.

RLR’s optional features include Bluetooth, Data Logging and Following-Too-Close.

The RLR is an FDA/CDRH CLASS 1 Laser Device (Class 1M in Europe) and complies with IEC 60825-1:2014 Ed. 3.0 which means it is eye safe by both U.S. and European standards.

Stalker introduced its first LIDAR in 1997. The LIDAR RLR is designed and manufactured exclusively by Stalker Radar, the world leader in speed measurement. Law enforcement organizations, professional sports teams, and manufacturers around the globe requiring state of the-art-speed measurement applications look to Stalker Radar products for the utmost in quality and value. These devices are manufactured in the United States at Stalker’s Texas facility and meet the Buy America Act so federal grant money can be used to purchase these products.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Stalker introduces CopTrax II™ second-generation real-time streaming in-car video system.

PLANO, Texas (April 25) – The world’s most advanced in-car video system is now even better.

Stalker recently introduced its second-generation CopTrax II real-time streaming in-car video system. The new CopTrax II builds on the original CopTrax automatic wireless file upload platform and integrates a powerful on-board computer video processor, allows full system control through any smart device, and records separate redundant video as backup.

CopTrax II moves video processing tasks from the patrol vehicle’s laptop to CopTrax II’s own integrated computer. Doing this has the dual benefit of relieving the patrol vehicle laptop of some of its processing load, while shifting the processor-intensive video tasks into the CopTrax II standardized environment. Both systems are controlled through the vehicle laptop’s touch screen.

Users can now fully control the CopTrax II in-car system with any smart device. The complete CopTrax control screen that is presented on the patrol vehicle laptop is visible on any Android, iPhone, or iPad. The user can start and stop recording, switch cameras, take a photo, find a location, review video – anything that can be done from the in-car laptop can now be done remotely from a smart device.

CopTrax II ensures that no video evidence is lost by automatically activating redundant background recording when the vehicle’s ignition is turned on. Running in the background, it captures up to 120 hours of video on a separate internal drive. When the main CopTrax video system records an event, both the event video and the redundant background video are saved.

In addition, CopTrax II includes a user configurable impact-sensing accelerometer with crash/pursuit settings, 1280x720 HD video recording, embedded WiFi, and 8 separate hardware triggers. A built-in battery backup maintains operation even if the vehicle’s battery is fully discharged. This allows an orderly system shutdown during an outage.

CopTrax II builds on original CopTrax’s ground-breaking live video streaming to any Internet-connected computer and its labor-saving automatic video file upload, even while on patrol. CopTrax II includes all of the functionality of the original, including:

  • Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL)
  • GPS synchronized video recording
  • Automatic recording initiated by user selectable triggers
  • Advanced video labeling by incident type
  • Video playback with mapping / tracking
  • Dual high-resolution video cameras
  • High-quality audio recording

The CopTrax system embeds geographic positioning data into the video stream.  Now, what the officer is seeing, hearing, and where they are seeing it is captured in real-time. Agencies have greater situational awareness, better asset coordination, and more accurate event recreation.

The CopTrax System's Command and Control Center is accessible from any Internet connected computer – at the station, the Chief's office, even a computer located at a residence.
The Command and Control Center and Case Management System include the following features:

  • Displays the location of all devices (MDTs and smartphones)
  • Searches and exports video by meta data
  • Plays back video with synchronized tracking data
  • Uses GPS tracking data for event reconstruction
  • Monitors geo-fenced areas and proximity markers
  • Automatically emails and texts alerts to officers and/or staff
  • Attaches documents to cases / incident reports
  • Generates crime maps

CopTrax is available in the United States through Stalker Radar's network of Regional Sales Managers and outside the U.S. through authorized distributors. For more information, visit the CopTrax web site, CopTrax.net.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Stalker Radar’s Traffic Data Collector gathers traffic statistics to help support grant applications or community policing measures.

PLANO, Texas (Feb. 19) – Stalker Radar’s Traffic Data Collector gathers real-world traffic statistics that help support a department’s grant applications or verify neighborhood traffic patterns for community policing measures.

Stalker Radar’s Traffic Data Collector can begin collecting traffic data as soon as it is deployed. Simply secure it to its locking mounting bracket, aim the tiltable radar antenna, and turn it on. With a 7-day battery life, the Traffic Data Collector captures vehicle data that can be analyzed later with Stalker’s full-featured, easy-to-use Traffic Statistics App, included with every collector.

Stalker’s Traffic Statistics App presents data in a 2-axis graphing window that makes the survey analysis results clearly understandable. Traffic Statistics, Survey Description, and Display Controls surround the graphing window. Changes made to parameters update the graphing window in real time.

NHTSA free flow formatting, including 10 mph pace, 10 mph pace (+), 85th percentile, and average speed are shown in the Speed/Time and Count/Speed views, while a Count/Time comparison is also available. Speed resolution ranges from 1 mph to 20 mph. Time resolution goes from 1 minute to 1 hour. Five vehicle classifications are available as well as monitoring either traffic closing or moving away, or both directions simultaneously.

The Traffic Data Collector is housed in a small, stealthy looking, waterproof IP65 box with no exterior markings or stickers. It’s also portable, employing a two-piece lockable mounting bracket that makes it easy to detach, move to another location, and reattach.

When the Traffic Data Collector is set up, there is no need to preload locations, direction, etc. That can be done later when the data is retrieved for analysis. The sensor can be tilted down up to 30 degrees for a more accurate vehicle count and to enhance vehicle classifications.

When the survey period is complete, data can be downloaded by either connecting a PC or by attaching a USB memory stick (supplied with the unit) to the USB port. Data is automatically transferred to the memory stick without user action.

Once collected, Stalker’s Traffic Statistics App provides an easy method for adding location, direction of traffic, weather, etc.

Results can be shown as either tabular data or as a chart. Chart formats include: line, column, stacked column, and area.

The Traffic Data Collector weighs 7.7 lbs. (3.49 kg) without battery and 21.4 lbs. (9.71 kg) with a typical battery. Dimensions are 12.4” x 8.7” X 5.2” (315 X 221 X 132 mm). Enclosed in a rugged non-descript polycarbonate case, ambient operating temperature ranges from -22° to +122° F (-30° to + 50° C).

The radar sensor detects approaching or receding vehicles at a resolution of 1 mph (1 km/h). Typical range is 800 ft. (240 m). The 30° x 32° beam can cover up to three lanes of traffic.

Founded in 1977, Stalker Radar designs and manufacturers law enforcement and sports Doppler radar systems that are leaders in their areas, and has leveraged its expertise to create a line of high-performance radar sensors for OEM speed monitoring and control applications.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Shoot through bushes, trees, fences and utility poles with Stalker’s LIDAR XLR Auto Obstruction Mode.

PLANO, Tex. (April 1) – Clocking vehicle speeds from locations formerly impossible due to obstructions to the line of sight is now possible with Stalker’s LIDAR XLR’s exclusive C-Thru Technology.

Using the Stalker LIDAR XLR’s Auto Obstruction mode, targets that are partially obscured by objects – bushes, trees, fences, utility poles, guy wires, etc. – can be automatically tracked and identified. This gives the officer more location choices when setting up to monitor traffic.

Stalker’s C-Thru Technology enables the LIDAR XLR to ‘learn’ where these obstructions are in its beam and track the target through these interruptions in its reflected signal. No other traffic enforcement laser has this capability.

The industry’s smallest and lightest hand-held traffic laser also features a School Zone/Construction Zone mode as well as Inclement Weather mode. Its anti-jamming software detects and ignores jamming pulses while continuing to provide accurate speed tracking. Plus, it easily shoots through windshields with much greater target range than previously thought possible.

A One-Year parts and labor warranty protects an agency’s investment.

The XLR is backed up by a full line of accessories, including: holsters for Harley-Davidson, Honda, and BMW; extra battery handles and a variety of chargers; hard and soft carrying cases; and tripod and shoulder mounting attachments.

At 2.3 lbs. including battery handle, the XLR weighs the least of all the hand-held, gun style, Lidar devices. The Li-Ion battery handle typically provides ample power for two or more shifts and lasts for many years. During its lifetime, the rechargeable battery handle can save more than $2,300 when compared to conventional Alkaline batteries. The ergonomic design, coupled with the light weight and a Heads-Up-Display (HUD), make the XLR LIDAR comfortable and easy to use.

Acquisition time is under 1/3 second with a variable audio tone corresponding to target speed, much like a radar's Doppler tone which many officers are already recognize. There is no tone when no target is being tracked, while a staccato tone increases as the vehicle is initially tracked and the return signal quality increases.

Speeds can be measured from 1-299 mph, 2-481 km/h, and 2-344 knots, all with ±1 unit accuracy. They are waterproof and can operate from -22°F to 140°F (-30°C to 60°C).

The XLR is an FDA/CDRH CLASS 1 Laser Device (Class 1M in Europe) and complies with IEC 60825-1:2007-03. Ed 2.0 which means it is eyesafe by both U.S. and European standards.

The XLR is listed on the International Association of Chiefs of Police Conforming Product List.

Stalker introduced its first LIDAR in 1997. The LIDAR XLR is designed and manufactured exclusively by Stalker Radar, the World Leader in Speed Measurement.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

STAY IN THE ZONE. The Stalker LIDAR XLR School Zone/Construction Zone Modes

PLANO, Tex. (May 1) -- Precision speed enforcement in school and construction zones is possible with the latest enhancement of Stalker’s LIDAR XLR. The industry’s smallest and lightest hand-held traffic laser allows the operator to define a specific zone for speed enforcement while excluding targets outside of that zone.

Stalker’s LIDAR XLR’s School Zone / Construction Zone mode is ideal when pedestrian safety is threatened by excessive speed or inattentive motorists. An officer can quickly and easily use the XLR to set the boundaries of an enforcement zone where a mandatory speed reduction is required.

Using the School Zone / Construction Zone mode eliminates the common violator contention of being out of the zone when their speed was measured. Plus, the XLR can be reset into normal mode in a matter of seconds.

The XLR also features an Inclement Weather mode and Stalker’s C-Thru Technology which enables the XLR to ignore objects like trees, bushes, poles, and fences between it and the target vehicle. And its anti-jamming software detects and ignores jamming pulses while continuing to provide accurate speed tracking.

A One-Year parts and labor warranty protects an agency’s investment.

The XLR is backed up by a full line of accessories, including: holsters for Harley-Davidson, Honda, and BMW; extra battery handles and a variety of chargers; hard and soft carrying cases; and tripod and shoulder mounting attachments.

At 2.3 lbs. including battery handle, the XLR weighs the least of all the hand-held Lidar devices. The Li-Ion battery handle typically provides ample power to last two or more shifts.

The ergonomic design, coupled with the light weight, make the XLR LIDAR comfortable and easy to use.

Acquisition time is under 4/10s second with a variable audio tone corresponding to target speed, much like a radar's Doppler tone which many officers are already familiar. There is no tone when no target is being tracked, while tone repetition increases as the beam moves into the target and return signal quality increases.

Speeds can be measured from 1-299 mph, 2-481 km/h, and 2-344 knots, all with ±1 unit accuracy. They are waterproof and can operate from -22°F to 140°F (-30°C to 60°C).

Stalker Radar introduces new X-Series traffic speed enforcement LIDARs.

San Diego, CA (Sept. 29) -- Stalker Radar and LIDAR, the World Leader in Speed Measurement unveiled its new X-Series traffic speed enforcement LIDARs at the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) Conference and Law Enforcement Education and Technology Exposition.

"The all-new Stalker LIDAR XLR and XS are the smallest and lightest hand-held, gun type lasers on the market today," according to Bill Fagan, Stalker Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "Stalker Engineers achieved substantial reductions in size and weight through development of circuit miniaturization technologies and advanced manufacturing techniques.

"At 2.3 lbs. including the removable/rechargeable battery handle, the X-Series may be light but it's no lightweight," Fagan said. "The Li-Ion battery handle provides ample power to last two or more shifts, depending on how long and often speeds are measured. The ergonomic design, coupled with the light weight, makes the X-Series LIDAR comfortable and accurate to use.

"Acquisition time is under 0.4 second with solid tracking and the industries longest range."

The X-Series Long Range (XLR) is the best choice for targets as far as 4,000 feet away while the X-Series Standard (XS) is ideal for metropolitan and suburban departments.

The X-Series LIDARs feature rugged molded polycarbonate bodies that stand up to almost anything encountered during an officer's day or night.

Along with exclusive simultaneous speed/distance HUD display, both LIDAR models feature tracking (continuous) and single-shot modes with a variable auto tone corresponding to target speed, much like a radar's Doppler tone which many officers are already familiar. There is no tone when no target is being tracked, while tone repetition increases as the beam moves into the target and return signal quality increases.

Speeds can be measured from 1-299 mph, 2-481 km/h, and 2-344 knots, all with ±1 unit accuracy. They are waterproof and can operate from -22°F to 140°F.

Both the XLS and XS are FDA/CDRH CLASS 1M Laser Devices which means they are eye-safe.

The LIDAR X-Series is designed and manufactured exclusively by Stalker Radar, the World Leader in Speed Measurement. Law enforcement organizations, professional sports teams, and manufacturers around the globe requiring state of the art speed measurement applications look to Stalker Radar products for the utmost in quality and value.


May 18, 2011 - Stalker Radar's new Dual Zone mode allows the officer to simultaneously monitor the speeds of ALL targets in the direction he is looking (either front or rear).

PLANO, Texas, May 18, 2011 — The addition of Dual Zone mode (simultaneous opposite zone and same lane zone), on a single antenna, presents the officer with a clearer picture of traffic speeds leading to better speed enforcement. The new Dual Zone feature is available exclusively on Stalker’s top of the line Stalker 2X traffic radar.

Stalker Radar's new Dual Zone technology takes full advantage of the Stalker 2X antennas' direction-sensing ability as well as fully utilizing the radar's display to present speed data on up to four targets simultaneously, four targets with the front antenna or four targets with the rear antenna.

The 2X Dual Zone's capability distinguishes it from competitors' moving radars: the 2X can monitor two zones from a single antenna. With the 2X, an operator can simultaneously monitor front same and front opposite or rear opposite and rear same Target Zones. No other police speed enforcement radar on the market has this patent-pending feature.

Sound complicated? It really isn't. Once you drive it you'll see how intuitive the controls are and how the 2X's automatic functions allow the operator to drive the patrol vehicle, rather than manipulate the radar.

Think of the Stalker 2X as two independent radar units operating through a single, 5-window display. Conventional moving radars can only monitor two vehicles in one Target Zone. The Stalker 2X can monitor four vehicles in one or two Target Zones. The 2X's 5-window display contains two strongest target windows, two faster target windows, and a single patrol speed window. One Target Zone is displayed in each set of strongest/faster windows. Any combination of one front and one rear Target Zones can be monitored, for example front opposite direction and rear same direction.

In Dual Zone mode, one antenna can simultaneously monitor targets in both target zones in its radar beam. All other radar monitor only one target zone at a time.

When in stationary mode, all four Target Zones can be simultaneously monitored. Dual Zone Mode is also available while stationary, the chief advantage being that each of the two Target Zones uses a separate set of strongest/faster windows.

Stalker's 2X traffic speed enforcement radar sets the standard for enforcement versatility and user-friendly technology.

The Stalker 2X's ergonomic remote control allows the operator full control of the radar without having to manipulate display panel controls. Its true Doppler tone reflects the target speed rather than patrol vehicle's speed. Operators learn to judge target speed from the Doppler tone without diverting attention from the roadway ahead. And when a target is locked, the 2X voice enunciator confirms: 1) the target's position relative to the patrol vehicle, 2) whether the radar is in stationary or moving mode, and 3) the target's direction relative to the patrol vehicle. For example, "Front, stationary, closing."

Stalker Radar is the World Leader in Speed Measurement. Law enforcement organizations, professional sports teams, and manufacturers around the globe requiring state of the art speed measurement applications look to Stalker Radar products for the utmost in quality and value.


February 21, 2011 - Stalker Radar patents Vehicular Traffic Surveillance Doppler Radar System.

PLANO, Texas, February 21, 2011 — Applied Concepts / Stalker Radar announced that it has been granted a patent for its Vehicular Traffic Surveillance Doppler Radar System. This system substantially eliminates look-past error by determining the range and speed of vehicles in multiple-vehicle environments.

In particular, the range of the target vehicle may be utilized in a comparative fashion in a multi-vehicle environment to determine which vehicle is closer or the closest. Also, the range of the target may be utilized in conjunction with the speed and heading of the target to determine the risk of collision between the target and patrol vehicle.

The Stalker Vehicular Traffic Surveillance Doppler Radar System, combined with its existing patent for Radar Rear Traffic Alert, continues and builds on the Stalker Radar commitment to continually improving traffic enforcement officer safety, a Stalker Radar spokesman said.

Applied Concepts, Inc., dba Stalker Radar, was formed in 1977 and introduced the first law enforcement Stalker Radar in 1990 and the first sport radar in 1995. Stalker Radars have become the dominant Doppler radar systems in both fields and continue to lead the radar industry in technology breakthroughs and product innovations. Stalker team members have been involved in almost every significant radar-based product development since 1970.

January 4, 2011 - Stalker Radar introduces new High Capacity Battery Handle for its Pro II hand-held sport radar guns

PLANO, Texas, January 4, 2011 —Stalker Radar, the World Leader in Speed Measurement, recently announced the release of a high-capacity battery handle for its Pro II hand-held sport radar guns.

Technically speaking, the new high-capacity Lithium-ion battery is rated at 3.7 amp hours when compared to the 2.4 amp hour rating of the standard battery handle.  Unlike older nickel-cadmium (NiCad) batteries, the Li-ion batteries have no memory effect, a slower loss of charge when not in use, and greater number of charge-discharge cycles during their lifetime.

Practically, high-capacity batteries mean 40% more capacity and longer time between charges – roughly 4 hours of constant transmit (“trigger down”) time, and significantly longer time in normal (intermittent transmit) use.

The new battery handles are standard on all new Pro II radars and compatible with a new high-capacity charger. The new batteries will also charge using both standard chargers and in-line (through the gun) charging circuits in the older radar guns, but require two (2) charging cycles to achieve full capacity. 
High-capacity charging circuitry upgrades are available for standard chargers and older model Pro II radar guns to allow them to charge a new high-capacity battery in one (1) charging cycle. Standard battery handles will also charge in high capacity chargers and work in both types of radar guns.

Stalker Radar is the World Leader in Speed Measurement.  Law enforcement organizations, professional sports teams, and manufacturers around the globe requiring state of the art speed measurement applications look to Stalker Radar products for the utmost in quality and value.


September 14, 2010 - Stalker Radar's new STATS II acceleration testing system stores data in the radar gun for later analysis

PLANO, Texas, September 14, 2010 —Stalker Radar Inc., the World Leader in Speed Measurement, unveiled its new STATS II (STalker Acceleration Testing System) package, utilizing the new Stalker ATS II radar gun and a new generation of Stalker's ATS II acceleration/deceleration analysis software.

The STATS II package is a portable and accurate system for measuring and analyzing an object's acceleration rate and deceleration rate, as well as calculating the distance traveled in a measured amount of time.

Unlike the previous generation STATS software, the radar gun does not have to be connected to a computer when taking acceleration/deceleration readings. Stalker's STATS II system provides a detailed picture through graphs and tables of the dynamics of acceleration and is perfect for racing organizations, vehicle manufactures, and athletes. Stalker's STATS II system is particularly useful in situations where it's inconvenient or impossible to have a computer concurrently connected to the radar.

The new ATS II software is also backwards compatible with the first-generation Stalker Pro ATS radar.

During operation, the ATS II radar measures speeds at precise intervals and stores them for later download to the computer. The ATS II software accumulates the readings, analyzes the speed data, assigns time information, and calculates distance and acceleration for each data sample. Then it renders them into graph and table format.

The ATS II radar's capture software processes the trial data to limit interference effects and can apply a wide variety of filters to the raw radar data in order to smooth the effects of noise and other data interruptions to compile a more accurate graph. The ATS II software provides five different graphs to measure: speed-distance, speed-time, acceleration-time, acceleration-distance, and distance-time.

With the STATS II system, readings can be uploaded for analysis anytime. When used hand-held, data can be transferred by pulling the radar trigger; when the radar is remotely mounted, data can be transferred from the computer's keyboard.

The new features of the ATS II Radar gun include: • Local Storage of Trials- An hour’s worth of speed samples can be stored and the total storage can be divided among any number of trials. • Expanded Built-In Applications- Carnival, Car, Baseball, and Tennis modes are adjustable to provide greater accuracy. • Higher-Speed sampling- A higher sampling rate produces more speed readings per second which improves the accuracy acceleration analysis. • Adjustable Data Transfer Rate- The baud rate of data transfer between the radar gun and the computer is now adjustable, which allows the use of higher transfer rates when possible while providing lower rates when required.

The STATS II system is available in Stalker Radar's online store.

May 10, 2010 - New optics and electronics in Applied Concepts' Stalker Radar LIDAR LR reduce target acquisition time, extend range, and improve tracking.


PLANO, Texas, May 10, 2010 - Stalker Engineers started from scratch when they designed the optics and electronics for the new Stalker LIDAR LR. The result is faster target acquisition, greater range, and rock-solid target tracking.

Most obvious, the LIDAR LR features a new forward-swept battery handle for improved ergonomics, tight battery handle fit, and better targeting. The LR also meets both U.S. and European eye safety standards.

The Stalker Engineers built the new optics system around much larger objective lenses which enable better target illumination and improved return signal reception for greater targeting distance.

The LIDAR LR's three internal circuit boards were replaced by a single circuit board using surface mount technology and the most current components. The result is a 284:1 increase in processing power yielding an 8:1 increase in time and distance accuracy.

The new LIDAR LR optics allow a typical 4000-foot target acquisition distance while newly refined internal software algorithms provide smoother tracking, fewer dropouts, and a greatly reduced sweep affect.

Most LIDAR units cannot track a target if there are close, stationary objects in line with the target, however the LIDAR LR allows the operator to follow the target, ignoring small objects like telephone or utility poles or sign posts without losing target tracking.

Other features of the new lidar technology include:
• SMT (Service Mount Technology) for all major components
• A new faster CPU, resulting in improved target acquisition and tracking and greater targeting distance.
• New Time Distance Converter (TDC) for improved time/distance measurements
• Standardized receiver board built to accommodate any future enhancements

The LIDAR LR is perfect for officers who want the latest technology, longer targeting range, and less hand and arm stress with the ergonomic design.

The LIDAR LR is designed and manufactured exclusively by Stalker Radar, the World Leader in Speed Measurement. Law enforcement organizations, professional sports teams, and manufacturers around the globe requiring state of the art speed measurement applications look to Stalker Radar products for the utmost in quality and value.

March 30, 2009 - Stalker Radar Introduces Pro II Surface Velocity Radar (SVR)

PLANO, Texas, Mar. 30, 2009 – Stalker Radar announced the release of its new Stalker Pro II Surface Velocity Radar (SVR) designed specifically for measuring flow in rivers, streams, and other bodies of water.

The Stalker Pro II Surface Velocity Radar draws upon Stalker’s 19 years of radar speed measurement experience and its 22 accumulated patents in the industry. In addition, Stalker Radar’s manufacturing process is registered to ISO9001:2000.

The Pro II SVR features a rugged cast-metal exterior and the world's most sensitive transmitter/receiver as well as miniaturized and modernized electronics. Its direction sensing software and updated algorithms position the Pro II as a new-generation radar ideal for the task of accurate and reliable water flow measurement. Moreover, the Pro II's Ka Band performance measuring water flow is superior to the K Band used by other radars.

To make Pro II Surface Velocity Radar better suited for the different elevated perspectives in comparing water flow at different times or locations, Stalker Radar engineers developed automatic vertical tilt compensation. Simply put, Stalker's SVR automatically adjusts its speed reading based on the angle the radar points at the target flow. With a vertical angle accuracy of ±2° and vertical angle resolution of 1°, if an operator takes one reading pointing down at 45°, then takes another at 50°, both flow readings will be adjusted and directly comparable.

The Stalker Pro II SVR has a speed range of 0.2 m/s to 18.0 m/s – from below 1 mph to over 40 mph – with an accuracy of ±0.1 m/s. In addition to meters/second and mph, it also measures in centimeters/second, feet/second, and kilometers per hour.

February 24, 2005 - Patent-pending Virtual VSS™ standard on 2X

PLANO, Texas (Feb. 24) - Stalker Radar announced that its patent-pending Virtual VSS™ technology is now available as a standard feature on the Stalker 2X traffic enforcement radar. Virtual VSS uses both front and rear antennas to calculate patrol speed by comparing both antennas' signals.

"Virtual VSS uses both front and rear 2X antennas to detect ground speed, which in turn is used to calculate Patrol Speed," according to Bob Gratz, Stalker Radar Vice-President of Sales. "Using just one antenna - like all other radars do - occasionally leads to anomalies when measuring ground speed," Gratz said.

"With Virtual VSS, shadowing, for example, is nearly eliminated because the front signal is compared to the rear signal."

"That makes for a more consistent Patrol Speed," he said. "Moreover, no other speed enforcement radar besides the Stalker 2X is able to monitor both front and rear antennas at the same time."

"Traffic divisions not currently taking advantage of Stalker 2X's standard VSS capability would benefit greatly from the Virtual VSS feature," Gratz said.

Virtual VSS is now standard on all Stalker 2X law enforcement radars. Currently installed 2Xs will be automatically upgraded when they are returned to the factory for calibration, certification, or repair.
