Kustom amps were the preferred choice of musicians across all genres, including Johnny Cash, The Jackson 5, John Fogerty, and Brian Wilson.
Our knowledge of electronics allowed us to branch out into the manufacturing of RADAR and car monitors, paving the way for our service in the design and manufacturing of public safety equipment.
We released our first digital readout RADAR (TR6) in 1970, our first moving RADAR (MR7) in 1972, and our first handheld K-band RADAR (HR-8) in 1975. We also released our first two-window microprocessor-based RADAR (KR-11) in 1975. Our first moving K-band handheld RADAR (HR-12) was released in 1978.
In 1979, we introduced an instant-on function that added to an officer’s ability to track speeds on compulsion. An avionics division began in 1979 and was sold in 1984, but not before designing the “space RADAR” used by NASA to measure the speed and distance of objects in space.
In 1985, we released our first all-direction mode RADAR with Stopwatch Mode (H.A.W.K.).
1988 was a big year for Kustom Signals with the release of the first Speed Monitoring Awareness RADAR Trailer (SMART) and the first patrol car video system with a temperature-controlled vault (Eyewitness).
We released our first ProLaser LIDAR units with Heads-Up-Display, Continuous Tracking History, and Settable Range in 1990.
1992 saw the release of our first in-car video system with auto-zoom, and our first in-car video system with wireless microphone record activation, both Eyewitness.
In 1994, we launched our first three-window time/distance/speed computer (Tracker). We also launched the first Digital Signal Processing Based RADAR with Fastest Vehicle Mode, the first Digital Signal Processing based RADAR with multi-band antennas, and the first Digital Signal Processing based RADAR with wireless remote control – all EAGLE.
In 1996, we released our first Speed Monitoring Trailer with Free-Flow Statistics Method (SMART) and Speed Monitoring Trailer with Violator Alert (SMART).
In 1998, we launched our first Digital Signal Processing based RADAR with TruTrak Speedometer Input (EAGLE) and StealthStat, our first covert, pole-mounted traffic statistics gathering device.
Our first LIDAR with Selectable Environmental Mode (ProLaser III) was released in 1999.
In 2002, we released our first Digital In-Car Video offering multiple recording media options (Digital Eyewitness).
In 2004, we had our first Digital In-Car Video which offered multiple compression options and multiple file transfer options (Eyewitness NXT). We also launched our first In-Car Video offering dual control for MDC and a dedicated controller (Eyewitness NXT).
In 2006, we launched a two-piece RADAR with K-band Planar Array Antenna (Raptor), a binocular style Speed Enforcement Laser (Pro-Lite+) and the first traffic LIDAR to be powered with AA Batteries.
In 2007, we had our first handheld K-band Planar Array Antenna (Falcon HR) and first traffic safety video LIDAR with moving operation (LASERwitness).
In 2008, we released the first two-piece RADAR with a graphical display (Raptor) and the first RADAR with target tracking bar – DuraTrak™ (Raptor).
2010 ushered in the G3 Vision units with our first four-camera Simultaneous Recording Video, and our first Digital In-Car Video System utilizing Windows Internet Explorer as MDC User Interface.
In 2011, we released our first traffic LIDAR with Recalled Events Database and the first traffic LIDAR to be powered by AA, USB, or 12 VDC Power – both ProLaser 4.
In 2013, we had our first Video Laser with AutoTrak™ Automatic Zoom in the LaserCam 4.
In 2015, we released our first In-Car Video with a tablet-like User Interface and the first In-Car Video with a dedicated controller using essentially the same GUI as the MDC Interface – both the Eyewitness HD.
The Eyewitness Vantage came in 2016: our first Body-Worn Camera to offer Pre-Event, GPS, Audio Mute, Bookmarking, Day/Night Mode, and IR LEDs all in one package.
In 2021, we received patents that protect several features in our product portfolio including AutoTrak™, Certification Management, and the popular wireless Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS).
