Raptor RP-1

Weatherproof dash mounted RADAR for police cars & motorcycles

High Performance at a Great Price

The Raptor RP-1 quickly acquires targets at great ranges with K or Ka antennas.

Directional capability allows you to monitor approaching and/or receding vehicles for maximum performance and easy usage.

Superior target tracking

Patented features of the Raptor RP-1 include DuraTrak™ Target Tracking, providing added confidence in target identification.

TruTrak™ VSS interface enables automated mode switching between moving and stationary modes, and eliminates common RADAR anomalies like batching, shadowing and patrol speed combining.

Designed for Motorcycles

The separated display, antennas and remote control are waterproof for motorcycle operations. Thanks to the wide range of mounting kits available, the Raptor RP-1 can easily be fitted to police motorcycles.

FAQS

  • The Raptor Advanced Fork Test conducts a comprehensive test on two antennas in less than 20 seconds, getting you on the road quickly. The Raptor RP-1 prompts the user to ring two fork frequencies on both antennas, providing a clear pass/fail message and taking any subjectivity out of calculating the test results.
  • Optionally, the Raptor RP-1 can require the operator to conduct a successful test before placing the RADAR system in service

  • Raptor has a patented feature called DuraTrak™ that is a new target tracking tool. The target tracking bars are located next to the Strongest and Fastest target speeds and assist the officer with target identification. They are not just a signal strength indicator. They also indicate how long the RADAR has been tracking the target – or duration tracking. A great tool to supplement the officer’s visual tracking history!
  • The Raptor LCD is like no other RADAR display. You can actually see the target speeds better in direct sunlight while competitor’s LED displays wash-out. The display has both day and night settings with automatic or manual backlight control. It also has a message area with full text messages like Fort Test, Fast Tracking, RFI Detected, and Fast Locked unlike the competition who uses abbreviations with their LED display.
  • The Eagle 3 electronic fork is producing the same electronic signals which do not need to be transformed in order for the frequency counter to analyze them. Again, the mic & amp take an acoustically signal (fork ring) and transform it into an electrical signal. The electronic fork is already an electrical signal and does not require transformation. This certifies that our electronic fork is actually much easier than a traditional fork.
  • To certify an Eagle 3 remote control, you can eliminate the microphone and the amplifier and test the electric fork signal directly with the frequency counter. Each remote control has a unique serial number and can be certified just like a tuning fork.

  • Our high performance K-band antennas are unique in several ways. First, they are very small in size – only 3”x3” x1” deep. They have the same 12 degree beam width as Ka antennas. And they have an order of magnitude lower power transmission and power consumption than other traffic RADAR. The K-band antennas are FCC type 15 approved for emissions compared to typical FCC type 90 for Ka antennas. Even with the lower power output, these K-band antennas pick up targets fast, sometimes quicker than the competitors high performance KA antennas.
  • Of course. If you have not been contacted by Kustom Signals before, email us at sales@kustomsignals.com to let us know you want to learn more.
  • Kustom Signals does not set the calibration interval, it is set by the state or local judicial system.
  • Kustom Signals does provide onsite support and training. If it was not part of your initial purchase, or quotation, please contact your sales representative to arrange a quotation and discuss your needs.

Mounting Options

The Raptor RP-1 can be mounted to almost any patrol vehicle. For more information see our mounting overview.

The Raptor RP-1 acquires both patrol speed and target speed quickly. It is small and easy to use on a motorcycle. It works as good as or better than any car mounted system I have used.
