LRAD® Systems Being Deployed in Afghanistan
SAN DIEGO, CA, June 29, 2010 – LRAD Corporation
(NASDAQ: LRAD), the global leader in acoustic hailing devices (AHDs), announced today it has
been awarded a new $700,000+ Long Range Acoustic Device® 100X™/300X™ order from the U.S. Military for
immediate shipment and scheduled deployment in Afghanistan. LRAD Corporation’s proprietary directed
AHDs enable military forces to communicate and determine the intent of potential threats at safe
distances, providing time and distance to employ a measured response.
The LRAD 100X is a hand-held, long-range communications system that outperforms and surpasses conventional megaphones and bullhorns. The 100X features optimized driver and waveguide technology to ensure loud, highly intelligible voice communication so every word is understood. The extraordinary acoustic performance of the 100X comes in a rugged package that can be operated in all types of outdoor environments. Interfaces include a standard microphone as well as a rugged media player designed for easy operation in demanding conditions.
The LRAD 300X is a compact, lightweight solution for armored vehicles and Common Remotely Operated Weapon Stations (CROWs). It can be easily transported to provide military personnel long-range communications and a highly effective hailing and warning capability where needed. From inside their armored vehicles, 300X operators can issue clear, authoritative multi-lingual commands, followed with powerful deterrent tones to enhance response capabilities.
“We believe the LRAD 100X is the world’s best solution for portable on-scene and tactical communications,” said Tom Brown, president and CEO of LRAD Corporation. “Our LRAD 300X is a powerful communications system that has the proven capacity to reduce civilian and military casualties by enabling military personnel to broadcast warnings and instructions from within the safety of their vehicles to potentially diffuse situations before they become deadly.”
