ENGLEWOOD, Fla., Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Escort Inc., one of the most recognizable names in the radar detector industry, has become a licensee of the Safety Warning System(TM), the revolutionary microwave technology that informs drivers of road hazards and other special traffic conditions. The West Chester, Ohio-based Escort introduced landmark high-performance superheterodyne radar detector technology in 1978 and has continued to be a technological leader, with such models as the pocket-size Passport, the cordless Solo and the Escort DSP with digital signal processing. Escort has been granted more patents in the radar detection field than any other company. "We are extremely pleased that Escort has chosen to become part of the Safety Warning System team and will soon begin incorporating this important technology in its products," commented Janice Lee, president of Safety Warning System, L.C., the organization overseeing development of the Safety Warning System. Operating on the same microwave frequency as police radar's K-band, Safety Warning System(TM) transmitters alert drivers as they approach road hazards ranging from railroad crossings to stopped school buses, utility crews, road construction and traffic accidents. Existing radar detectors notify drivers with a visual and audible warning when encountering a transmitter. However, SWS(TM) receivers respond a special alert and display one of over 60 permanently stored text messages telling exactly what sort of hazard is nearby. Manufacturers have sold well in excess of 4 million SWS receivers over the past two years. Along with Escort, SWS licensees include BEL-Tronics, L.L.C., MPH Industries, Inc., SK Global America, Inc., Santeca Electronics, Inc., Star Dreams Corporation, Uniden America Corporation, Whistler Corporation and Yupiteru Industries, Co. Ltd. For more information, contact Safety Warning System, L.C. at 2400 N. Beach Road, Unit 12, Englewood, FL 34223; telephone 914-473-1555; fax 941-475-4826; e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
