Stalker Radar Inc., the World Leader in Speed Measurement, unveiled its new STATS II (STalker Acceleration Testing System) package, utilizing the new Stalker ATS II radar gun and a new generation of Stalker's ATS II acceleration/deceleration analysis software.

The STATS II package is a portable and accurate system for measuring and analyzing an object's acceleration rate and deceleration rate, as well as calculating the distance traveled in a measured amount of time.

Unlike the previous generation STATS software, the radar gun does not have to be connected to a computer when taking acceleration/deceleration readings. Stalker's STATS II system provides a detailed picture through graphs and tables of the dynamics of acceleration and is perfect for racing organizations, vehicle manufactures, and athletes. Stalker's STATS II system is particularly useful in situations where it's inconvenient or impossible to have a computer concurrently connected to the radar. The new ATS II software is also backwards compatible with the first-generation Stalker Pro ATS radar.

During operation, the ATS II radar measures speeds at precise intervals and stores them for later download to the computer. The ATS II software accumulates the readings, analyzes the speed data, assigns time information, and calculates distance and acceleration for each data sample. Then it renders them into graph and table format.

The ATS II radar's capture software processes the trial data to limit interference effects and can apply a wide variety of filters to the raw radar data in order to smooth the effects of noise and other data interruptions to compile a more accurate graph. The ATS II software provides five different graphs to measure: speed-distance, speed-time, acceleration-time, acceleration-distance, and distance-time, according to Jim Shaw, Stalker Radar (Applied Concepts) Marketing Director.

With the STATS II system, readings can be uploaded for analysis anytime. When used hand-held, data can be transferred by pulling the radar trigger; when the radar is remotely mounted, data can be transferred from the computer's keyboard.

The new features of the ATS II Radar gun include:

  • Local Storage of Trials- An hour's worth of speed samples can be stored and the total storage can be divided among any number of trials.
  • Expanded Built-In Applications- Carnival, Car, Baseball, and Tennis modes are adjustable to provide greater accuracy.
  • Higher-Speed sampling- A higher sampling rate produces more speed readings per second which improves the accuracy acceleration analysis.
  • Adjustable Data Transfer Rate- The baud rate of data transfer between the radar gun and the computer is now adjustable, which allows the use of higher transfer rates when possible while providing lower rates when required.

The STATS II system is available in Stalker Radar's online store.
