We are pleased to be the Official 3D Doppler Tracking Radar of the 2008 PGA Fall Expo, said Henri Johnson, CEO of EDH, maker of FlightScope, based in Orlando, Fla., As FlightScope will be on display in a variety of ways at the Expo, we feel confident that attendees will have every opportunity to experience our state-of-the-art technology.

FlightScope, a feature-rich device which is far more than just a golf launch monitor, is being discovered worldwide for its advanced technological attributes. Academies, golf equipment manufacturers, clubfitters, retailers, and green-grass and practice facilities have embraced FlightScope's advanced technology. FlightScope recently was awarded the GolfTest USA Seal of Excellence 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, in Stellenbosch, near Cape Town in South Africa. EDH develops products for the defense and sports markets, and has as its core expertise the design and development of 3D tracking radar systems.
