Pocket Radar is the next generation in radar gun technology. It delivers the same great accuracy as other professional radar guns at a fraction of the cost and fits in the palm of your hand. Its compact size allows you to keep it within reach any time you need it.
Pocket Radar allows anyone to afford the same accurate speed measurements as other professional radar guns in a smaller, more convenient package. The hand-held size allows you to take measurements discreetly without changing the behavior of athletes or those you are observing. It can do more than traditional radar guns, including measuring runner speed and acceleration, as well as ball speed out of the hand, and ball speed off the bat, stick, club, or racquet. It is also great for skiing, soccer, R/C hobbies, motorsports, traffic safety, and more.
The Pocket Radar is a Doppler speed radar system, which works by emitting a small pulse of radio waves in an invisible focused beam, similar to the shape of a flashlight beam. When the radio wave hits an object that is moving toward or away from the Pocket Radar, a small amount of the wave reflects back. The Pocket Radar receives the reflected radio wave and compares it to the original transmitted radio wave, calculates the difference between the two waves, and displays the object's speed--all of which happens almost instantly.
The Pocket Radar has received multiple industry awards including the Consumer Electronics Show's (CES) ""Innovation Honoree in Personal Electronics"" award. In creating the world's most compact speed radar device, all aspects of Doppler radar technology have been reassessed, re-engineered, and rebuilt by top design engineers to achieve a unique product that delivers full-sized performance in a miniaturized package. Compared to standard, bulky radar guns, the Pocket Radar is a fraction of the size and weight, and further boasts:
The Pocket Radar Personal Radar Gun includes a limited one-year manufacturer's warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.
The Pocket Radar comes with everything you need to get started, including the Pocket Radar, a hard-shell carrying case, set of two AAA alkaline batteries, wrist strap, and Quick Start Guide.
With its sleek, compact, ultra portable design, the speed radar device is designed for use by both professionals and everyday consumers in a wide range of applications, from coaches clocking baseball pitch speeds, to athletes seeking improved performance, to racing fans looking to enhance their viewing experience and become part of the action.
Here are some great Pocket Radar™ uses:
|Track and Field||Fan Experience|
|Basketball||Soap Box Derby|
Pocket Radar™ utilizes a Doppler radar signal sensing and processing system coupled with re-engineered microwave and antenna components to deliver powerful performance in a device compact enough to easily fit into a shirt pocket.
In creating the world’s most compact speed radar device, we had to completely re-assess, re-engineer and re-build nearly every aspect of traditional radar technology. By combining Pocket Radar™’s proprietary digital signal processing algorithms and state-of-the-art intelligent target acquisition techniques we are able to provide users with industry leading accuracy and speed measurement in a device that is a tiny fraction of the size of traditional speed radar guns.
Pocket Radar™ sets a new standard for performance. Designed to be used by both professionals and everyday consumers in a wide range of applications, from coaches clocking baseball pitch speeds, to athletes seeking improved performance, to NASCAR® racing fans looking to enhance their viewing experience and become part of the action, Pocket Radar™ forges a new standard in speed radar performance.
Accurate to within 1 mile per hour, Pocket Radar™ is able to take 10,000 speed measurements using one set of AAA batteries. Its small size and easy-to-use point-and-shoot functionality means that Pocket Radar™ users can get right to the action, while others are still setting up and turning on their traditional, bulky radar speed guns.

How It Works
The Pocket Radar™ is a Doppler speed radar system.
It works as a speed detector by emitting a small pulse of radio waves in an invisible focused beam, similar in shape to a flashlight beam.
When the radio wave hits an object that is moving towards or away from the Pocket Radar™, a small amount of the wave reflects back.
The moving object modifies the reflected radio wave based upon how fast it is moving directly towards or away from the Pocket Radar™.
The Pocket Radar™ receives the reflected radio wave and compares it to the original transmitted radio wave. The Pocket Radar™ then calculates the speed of the moving object based upon the difference between the two radio waves.
Note that the Pocket Radar™, like all Doppler speed radars, can only measure the speed of a moving object that is reasonably close to in-line with the direction of the radio wave beam. It cannot measure any motion side to side, across the radio wave beam. (NOTE: Never put yourself or others in a position where anyone could be hit by the moving object!)
The focused beam comes from the radar lens on the back of the unit directly behind the display.
Hold the Pocket Radar™ up vertically like a camera phone with the beam from the radar lens directly in line with the moving object you want to measure. Then "Press and Release" the big red button, like you are taking a picture, while the target object is in motion. The speed will appear on the display.
If the Pocket Radar™ display turned off and you missed the last speed reading, just press the recall button and it will re-appear. Continued pressing of the recall button allows you to view the last ten readings that you have taken.
