Pocket Radar is the next generation in radar technology. Independently tested and certified accurate by the police radar test lab, it delivers the same great accuracy of 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. Pocket Radar works great for traffic safety/engineering, baseball, softball, volleyball, tennis, hockey, lacrosse, soccer, golf, cricket, motorsports, R/C hobbies, winter sports, education, and many more.
Add more power to your hit or kick, and more speed and control to throws or pitches. Accurate speed measurement allows you to see the direct results of your training. Winner of numerous innovation awards, the Pocket Radar is designed for exceptional performance in a wide variety of applications. Pocket Radar is convenient and rugged enough for everyday use, from National Championship-winning coaches (see below) to anyone interested in speed.
Certified accurate enough to meet the demands of traffic professionals, the Pocket Radar is also a versatile and affordable sports training tool used by coaches and teams from pro to amateur. The simple point-and-shoot interface easily allows you to measure speed with the touch of a single button and can take over 10,000 readings from two standard AAA batteries. This allows you to go months, instead of hours, on a single set of batteries. Built from the same high-impact plastic as hockey helmets, the Pocket Radar is rugged enough to perform well in even the most demanding sports environments.

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.
