The ReacTime Championship software imports start data from the ReacTime Command Center to a computer for analysis. While the Championship software is not required for the operation of a ReacTime Championship system, its use allows meet officials to view, analyze, and print athlete reaction data and graphs while track-side from a laptop or netbook.
- Detect false starts using IAAF standards
- Accurate to 1/1000th of a second
- View, analyze, and print reaction data immediately after it’s recorded
- Access reaction data while track-side using a laptop or netbook
- View waveform graphs for every athlete
- View and compare gun-to-motion time intervals accurate to 1/1000th of a second
“In competitions held under Rules 1.1(a), (b), (c) and (f) and for any performances submitted for ratification as a World Record, the starting blocks shall be linked to an IAAF approved false start control apparatus. The Starter and/or an assigned Recaller shall wear headphones in order to clearly hear the acoustic signal emitted when the apparatus detects a false start (i.e. when reaction time is less than 100/1000ths of a second). As soon as the Starter and/or an assigned Recaller hears the acoustic signal, and if the gun is fired, there shall be a recall and the Starter shall immediately examine the reaction times on the false start control apparatus in order to confirm which athlete(s) is/are responsible for the false start. This system is strongly recommended for all other competitions.” -IAAF Rule 161.2 (2010-11)
