FlightScope® Introduces Putting Eagle

16 January 2009
ORLANDO, Fla. (January 16, 2009) FlightScope®, a premier portable indoor-outdoor ball-flight and launch monitor and the world's first-ever 3D Doppler tracking radar for golf, will introduce its new FlightScope® Putting Eagle at the PGA Merchandise Show, Jan. 28-31 in Orlando, Fla. The FlightScope Putting Eagle, the world's first fusion of 3D Doppler Radar and Machine Vision technology, will offer clubfitters and instructors a precise putter measurement system, with the result that FlightScope now can fit every club in a golfer's bag.

We are excited to add the FlightScope Putting Eagle to our state-of-the-art system, said Henri Johnson, CEO of EDH, maker of FlightScope. Now clubfitters and instructors can professionalize their programs with complete FlightScope technology.

The FlightScope Putting Eagle provides the following measurements:
  • putter face angle at impact
  • putter face angle at takeaway
  • ball strike position on the clubface
  • ball speed profile from the putter face over the full distance of the putting surface
  • ball horizonal trajectory from the putter face over the full distance of the putting surface
  • ball vertical trajectory from the putter face over the full distance of the putting surface, bounce, as well as smoothness of the ball travel
  • ball deceleration profile, showing the regions where the ball was airborne, skidding and rolling over
In addition to the above measurements, the FlightScope Putting Eagle software shows comparisons between players, as well as comparisons to past sessions of any player.

FlightScope, a feature-rich device which is far more than just a golf launch monitor, is being discovered worldwide for its advanced technological attributes. In addition to collegiate golf programs, academies, golf equipment manufacturers, clubfitters, retailers, and green-grass and practice facilities have embraced FlightScope's advanced technology. FlightScope was awarded the GolfTest USA Seal of Excellence this year for superior quality, value and performance.

FlightScope first was demonstrated in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., in 2001 and was introduced at the 2004 PGA Merchandise Show. In addition to its use at high-profile teaching academies and clubfitting venues worldwide, FlightScope is utilized for personal practice by tour professionals and avid golfers devoted to game improvement. It is known for its ease of use as well as the precision and accuracy of its technology. FlightScope employs phased array and ballistic tracking technology to record accurately the ball trajectory and to provide actual launch data. The characteristic distinguishing FlightScope from existing launch monitor technology is that FlightScope records the trajectory accurately in the precise environment in which the ball travels, thereby providing actual rather than implied data. The resultant ability of golfers, clubfitters and instructors to see the actual ball trajectory at various angles allows them to make precise adjustments for enhanced performance.

EDH, maker of FlightScope, is a product development company founded in 1989 by Henri Johnson, inventor and electronic engineer. EDH develops products for the defense and sports markets, and has as its core expertise the design and development of 3D tracking radar systems.
