Radar Expert Witnesses
What is a radar expert witness?
Radar expert witness candidates typically have areas of expertise in electrical engineering, meteorology, geology, or physics, and may be an active member of a technical industry organization such as the IEEE. Law enforcement expertise may be required in some cases involving radar detection. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, an attorney may require a subject matter expert with prior expert witness testimony experience.
What types of cases require a radar expert witness?
Matters requiring radar expert witness work may involve intellectual property, traffic and/or speeding enforcement, emergency, and security work.
Radar technology uses the scientific principle of radio waves to determine the range or velocity of an object. The term radar is credited to the U.S. Navy as an acronym for Radio Detection and Ranging. Examples of modern applications of a radar device include air traffic control, air-defense systems, antimissile systems, autonomous vehicles, and ground-penetrating radar for geological observations. And we have all seen a police officer with radar gun pointed in our direction.
