I seem to remember these guys. How many other companies can be
in Midlothian, VA?

Anyway, laser is damn-near unjammable. Radar is jammable, but
has some problems:

1) completely illegal under a wide variety of laws (start with
the FCC regs on xmitting at 4Ghz w/o a license, move to
"interfering with a police officer on duty").

2) when done right, almost undetectable. Ask the Air Force.
But done right costs $$$$$$$$$. These units spray out so much
noise that any radar gun today will detect it and read "JAMMED".
You go to jail.

3) Can't possibly have enough power to overcome the radar cross-
section of your car by "passively reflecting" from a 4x4" unit.

Get a Valentine-1 instead.
