About Applied Concepts / Stalker Radar

For the past 34 years, Applied Concepts, Inc. (dba Stalker

Radar) has been designing and manufacturing high quality

electronics from our facility in Plano, Texas, a northern

suburb of Dallas. Stalker Radar is now the nation’s largest

manufacturer of speed radar.


The Technology Leader

In 1989, Stalker Radar pioneered the use of digital signal processing (DSP) with Doppler speed radar with the revolutionary Stalker ATR Ka band police radar. Since the ATR radar, Stalker Radar has continued to lead the industry with the development of digital antenna communication, microstrip antenna design, double balanced mixers, and most recently, digital direction sensing Doppler radar. Stalker radars are clearly the most sophisticated and advanced available, boasting the highest level of performance and accuracy.

ISO 9001:2015 Certification

As a leader in the design, development, sale, and distribution of speed radar equipment, Applied Concepts, Inc., is registered as a certified Quality Management System.



The Industry Innovators

Applied Concepts, Inc., formed in 1977, introduced the first Stalker radar to the law enforcement industry in 1989.
