The Technology Behind FlightScope Golf Ball Trackers

Patended Fusion Tracking

Fusion Tracking = Tracking Radar + Image Processing. FlightScope's Patented Fusion Tracking is an innovative combination of 3D Doppler tracking and image processing. Technological advances in the field of image processing made it possible to improve the already accurate 3D tracking radar data for both club and ball measurements.

3D Doppler Tracking Golf Radar

Directions angles are sensed

1a. Oscillator Generates microwave signal

1b. Antenna Radiates signal

2. Moving Object Interferes with signal, reflects some energy, Movement/Doppler Shift

3. Phased Array Antenna Detects reflected signal, Compares phase detection

With technology improving the world of sports in leaps and bounds, more accurate sports measurement systems have resulted in improvements not only for players, but for spectators too. The two main technological aspects of the FlightScope 3D motion tracking device are its radar technology (very similar to that which is used in the military), and its advanced industrial electronics. The patented phased array tracking technology that is used in all FlightScope radar units is the most advanced in the industry today. How does the 3D Doppler Tracking Radar work?

FlightScope’s 3D motion tracking devices are not just about ball measurement; they can also help with your golf swing analysis by measuring 27 variables related to your Ball, Club or Swing, such as:

Ball Data

Ball Speed

Vertical Launch Angle

Horizontal Launch Angle

Vertical Decent Angle

Smash Factor

Spin Rate

Spin Axis

Carry Distance


Total Distance

Lateral Landing

Apex Height

Flight Time

Shot Dispersion

Distance to Pin

Skills Score

Club Data

Club Speed

Club Speed Profile

Club Acceleration Profile

Face Angle

Face to Path

Dynamic Loft

Angle of Attack

Club Path

Vertical Swing Plane

Horizontal Swing Plane

Spin Loft

The ball’s entire trajectory after it has been launched is also tracked, which means you have exceptionally comprehensive ball measurement information instantly available, helping you to improve your golf swing.
