- Scrambles police radar and laser speed detection devices.
- Comes with 1 year of our ticket rebate,
- a 3-year warranty
In the last 3 years, US drivers received 120,000,000 tickets. Rocky Mountain Radar drivers only received 64!
MORE THAN 40 YEARS OF BUILDING RADAR TECHNOLOGY FOR THE U.S. DEFENSE INDUSTRY WENT INTO DESIGNING AND BUILDING THE JUDGE 2.0
WHY THE JUDGE 2.0 IS THE BEST
- Long range detection
The Judge 2.0 can detect police radar up to 5 miles away (without annoying false alarms). The Judge 2.0 (the best radar detector on planet Earth) gives you plenty of warning to avoid a ticket.
- No false alarms
In addition to smart detection technology, The Judge 2.0 has an Early Warning Discriminator (EWD) andTraffic Rejection Sensor (TSR) to eliminate more false signals.
Rocky Mountain Radar’s scrambling technology (Radar & Laser) makes your car invisible to police speed detection equipment. It’s so effective, we will pay if you get a ticket.
Rocky Mountain Radar’s signature technology is radar scrambling. It would be easy to jam a police radar gun by transmitting a powerful signal, but it would also be illegal…so we came up with a legal way to scramble the computer inside a police radar gun.
Police radar is a simple radar system that sends out a continuous RF (Radio Frequency) signal. The police radar is an auto-dyne transceiver which means that it transmits a signal and mixes the return signal with itself to determine the Doppler shift (the amount of frequency change caused by bouncing off a moving target).
The Doppler shift is different for each frequency band the police radar operates on and proportional to the speed of the target. There are three radar bands that the police are allowed to operate in the USA. These are X-band, K-band and Ka-band. Ka-band is very wide and more difficult to detect using a police radar detector.
Because a police radar system must send and receive an RF signal, we can detect it, detect which band is being used…and much more.
Since detecting RF signals far in advance is a piece of cake for us, we can also add information to their signal to confuse Police Radar Speed Detectors.
A Police Radar Gun needs to get the same reading multiple times, sequentially, in order to display a valid speed to the officer operating the radar gun. The additional information that we add to their return signal makes it virtually impossible for the Police Radar Gun to get an accurate reading. This is why roadside trailers may display your speed even while you’re scrambling radar. They simply display all detected signals translated to speed.
Police LIDAR (Laser Radar) is a distance measuring device. The unit sends out a pulse of infrared light and measures how long it takes to strike an object and return. Taking this time and multiplying it by the speed of light gives one the round trip distance [distance times 2]. If the LIDAR then sends out a second pulse and measures that distance it can determine if the target is moving and what its speed is. If pulse one distance is D1 and second pulse is D2 and the LIDAR sends out the second pulse T1 seconds after the first then the objects speed can be calculated as the change of distance over time or (D1-D2)/T1. Since the LIDAR knows when the pulses go out and measures the distance for each pulse it has all the information it needs to determine target speed.
Of course, there is always the chance for interference so modern LIDAR contains a computer and sends out multiple pulses for each target measurement…often as many as 50 pulses. The computer then samples the data to develop an accurate measurement of speed for the target.
Don’t worry, you don’t need to understand all of that…we do. Click on the Laser Scrambling Technology tab to see what else we can do.
There are two methods that are used to try to interfere with the accurate reading of speed by LIDAR. The first, used by our competitors, is to simply try to overpower the unit by broadcasting a very large amount of infrared light. This takes a lot of energy so the jammer must first detect the Laser pulse to know when to turn on the power and frequently reacts too late to be effective. Of course, simple filtering of the incoming signals makes these types of jammers relatively ineffective.
The second method, employed ONLY by Rocky Mountain Radar, is much more effective but more costly to manufacture. This method creates infrared pulses virtually identical to those transmitted by the LIDAR. This requires much lower power transmission and is safer for the driver. Rocky Mountain Radar’s Laser scrambler creates 40 nano-second pulses every 125 nanoseconds (30 – 50 feet) to thoroughly confuse the LIDAR resulting in no speed being displayed. Since this pulse train is continuous, there is no need for detection prior to activation greatly enhancing the probability of effectively confusing the LIDAR! This method makes Laser Speed measurement both ‘near-sighted’ (cannot ‘see’ pulses beyond 125 feet) and overwhelms the computer with confusing data so it cannot determine an accurate speed.
