Flightscope, a developer and manufacturer of 3D Doppler tracking radar for sports, has provided t&f throwers a new way to analyze and improve their throwing. “Flightscope Athletics” is a portable, lightweight radar device that can track throws by measuring data points like launch speed, flight time and release angle.
The product uses phased-array 3D tracking radar technology and advanced ballistic flight analysis software to track launch-through-landing of any throwing implement—hammer, shot or discus. Immediate results provide instant feedback re throw data in real time, with synced video. The technology also features sector grouping to track performance, showcasing where each throw has landed throughout a training session.
