SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 26, 2012) - LRAD Corporation (NASDAQ: LRAD), the world's leading provider of long range acoustic hailing devices (AHDs), announced today it has received a new order from the United States Air National Guard for LRAD 100X systems. The order totals $550,000 and is scheduled to ship this quarter.
"With this order, LRAD systems will be in use by every major force of the Department of Defense," remarked Tom Brown, president and CEO of LRAD Corporation. "The Air National Guard will be deploying the LRAD 100X systems throughout the country to support and assist civil authorities in the event of severe natural or man-made disasters. LRAD systems have proven highly effective in communicating warnings, instructions and commands over wide areas before, during, and in the aftermath of catastrophes."
Self-contained and hand portable, the LRAD 100X is 20 - 30 decibels (dB) louder than most bullhorns and megaphones. Optimized driver and wave-guide technology ensure crystal clear voice communication so every syllable is understood over distances up to 600 meters. This extraordinary acoustic performance comes in a rugged package that can be operated in all weather conditions. Interfaces include a hardened microphone as well as a Mil-Spec media player designed for easy operation in demanding environments. The LRAD 100X is the world's best solution for portable on-scene, emergency communications.
"Our proprietary LRAD systems are the most reliable AHDs available," Brown added. "When disaster strikes, LRAD provides military and civilian emergency responders with One Voice to clearly communicate warnings and instructions to help keep the peace and save lives."
