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
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
