LIDAR Guns
LIDAR guns have varied in design over the past 10 years, and manufacturers have made significant changes to improve the device’s target acquisition time, target range, and even utilizing anti-jam software.  Some good examples showing how the manufacturers have changed their new LIDAR guns for 2012 are the Kustom Prolaser and Applied Concepts Stalker series.  With the Kustom Prolaser LIDAR guns … read more

Attenuation, Vertical Setup Installations, BMWs and Theory
There are a couple of setups which are common for E46 M3s – the most common is under the bumper setup: ^ The under bumper setup has problems when cresting a hill – even small hills you see on highways. When you go over the hill, most of the car is visible while the jammers aren’t, leaving you exposed to police shooting LIDAR down the hill. This is how people get 97mph tickets in 55mph zones a… read more

Georgia Testing Group: Summer 2014 LIDAR Test
When people talk about the LIDAR capital of the world, they are referring to Atlanta, Georgia. Unlike other cities around the country, Atlanta speed enforcement agencies utilize a host of different LIDAR guns. This busy town is also home to a manufacturer called DragonEye Technology, the maker of a LIDAR gun nicknamed “DALA” that is marketed with its ability to defeat LIDAR jammers. As a result, when our members travel across the country, many mention their preparedness when driving through this city and ensuring they have the best electronic countermeasures … read more

North California Testing Group: Summer 2014 LIDAR Test
After a long winter battering the United States, testing radar detectors and LIDAR jammers had to wait until better weather.  On June 29, 2014, four of our forum members (jdong, OpenRoad, unoriginalname, and STS134) got together and tested their LIDAR jammer setups against two very common LIDAR guns used by speed enforcement officials in northern California.  This had been a long awaited test, since most of our tests prior to 2014 were on the popular Laser Interceptor and Blinder HP-905 systems … read more

Diode Death-match: Laser Interceptor vs Laser Elite
Taking it up a notch Our previous battle between the Laser Interceptor (LI) and Laser Elite (LE) had taken place on ECCTG’s most difficult course with a relatively easy to protect car. This time around we decided to use a course more akin to what other groups have used in the past and a car larger than the Civic. Furthermore we would do each shot 3 times to ensure consistency. Jammer systems  … read more

Laser Interceptor vs Blinder M27 2.10 – Round 2
Time to take things to the next level Although we were pleased with the results of our first heads up test of the Laser Interceptor 8.03 vs. Blinder X-treme M27 vers. 2.10, we recognized deficiencies in our testing methodology. We needed to target just one location on the test vehicle per testing run. Just like last time we used one of our member’s Hyundai, which he equipped with the Laser … read more

Jammer Fest 2011 As we got out of our cars and stepped onto the test course, last Saturday morning at 6am, we knew we had an exciting day ahead of us. While the course and the test car were the same from our previous shootout between Laser Interceptor and Laser Elite, the Veil had been removed, the mounting location would be more realistic, the latest revision of the Blinder M27 would join the … read more

 

 

Laser Jammer Reviews


 200x100-K40_small K40 Laser Defuser g5 Review
Since 2010, our forum has discussed the performance of K40 products, such as their radar detectors and their laser jammers. As time progressed, only a few members in the community discussed their experiences with their K40 products.

Escort Laser ShifterPro Review
At the start of 2014, Escort Incorporated released a new LIDAR defense system they called the Laser ShifterPro.  Prior to this system, Escort sold the Shifter ZR4 and ZR3 models.  A significant change between the new Laser ShifterPro and the ZR models is that each new generation laser transceiver houses a LIDAR receiver diode and a LIDAR transmitter diode with LIDAR output in the infrared range of 905nm.  The  … read more

CT-12 Laser Jammer: Initial Impressions and Review
Before I begin I will thank acsclio from rd.net for sending me this unit to test. I was fairly surprised to see any kind of laser jammer going for ~$100. I figured it was some company trying to copy Blinder; however, when I got my hands on the unit I realized I was wrong. Here is what the system consists of: The model acsclio gave me is the wireless version. An install is … read more

Lidatek and the LE-10
In 1996 I was working at Synrad, LLC. A manufacturer of high power CO2 lasers used for industrial applications. One day the CEO/Owner/Chief Scientist, Peter Laakman, came in and was a bit upset. He had just gotten a speeding ticket by a LEO using Lidar. Peter was also fascinated because he did not know of Lidar and lasers being used as speed monitoring devices. As an oldschool German with a … read more

Laser Interceptor: Review
LIDAR, sometimes referred to as Laser, is a tool used by many Police Departments across the country that renders our normal windshield mount radar detectors useless. Some manufacturers of radar Detectors and some independent jammer companies have made devices to combat this technology.  Laser Interceptor makes just the item to combat this threat. The Laser Interceptor is an active Laser Jammer, which means it transmits a Jamming beam back to the shooting laser gun and therefore jamming the laser shot resulting in no speed reading…. read more
