It all has to do with marketing. Both in terms of the individual buyer and the retailer. But I wouldn't be too surprised if an Escort brand detector with the RDD invisibility started development.
Escort and Beltronics are the same company, the name "beltronics" is only used as a name now. The company is called "Escort manufacturing" or something like that.
To some of the otehr questions, yes radar can be used on the move in your direction, or opposite. Lazer on the other hand is different. They have to be stationary and can't aim through windows. Rain and fog greatly decrease the range of lazer. There is also a slight cosine error in the lazer reading the further away the target is.
