LRAD Corporation Receives $1.9 Million LRAD® Systems and Services Order From U.S. Navy

U.S. Navy Expands Long Range Acoustic Device® Deployments

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - June 22, 2010) -  LRAD Corporation (NASDAQ: LRAD), the global leader in acoustic hailing devices, announced today it has received a follow-on LRAD® systems and services order worth over $1.9 million from the U.S. Navy. Per the U.S. Navy's schedule, part of the order will ship before the end of their fiscal year 2010 (September 30, 2010) with the balance shipping in fiscal 2011.

LRAD Corporation's proprietary directed acoustic hailing devices (AHDs) enable military forces to determine the intent of potential threats at safe distances, providing time and distance to employ a measured response to a threat's actions. LRAD clearly broadcasts critical information, instructions and warnings to distances in excess of 3,000 meters. Through the use of focused multi-lingual voice commands and deterrent tones, LRAD creates increased standoff and safety zones, supports peaceful conflict resolution, and potentially prevents the use of deadly force.

"This latest order from the U.S. Navy includes pan & tilt systems developed in-house by our engineering team," commented Tom Brown, president and CEO of LRAD Corporation. "Through previous deployments and extensive operational and laboratory testing conducted by the U.S. Navy, our proprietary pan & tilt systems have proven to be rugged and reliable."

Brown concluded, "We look forward to continuing our support of the U.S. Navy by providing a highly effective communications capability and a proven escalation of force option capable of resolving uncertain situations and saving lives on both sides of the device."
