SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 26, 2012) - LRAD Corporation (NASDAQ: LRAD), the world's leading provider of long range acoustic hailing devices (AHDs), announced today it has received a LRAD 2000X systems order for a foreign border trial installation. If the trial installation is successful, the Company anticipates receiving larger follow-on orders.
"The LRAD 2000X was purpose built for border and large perimeter security applications," remarked Tom Brown, president and CEO of LRAD Corporation. "We received requests from international customers for a LRAD® system that provides them the ability to significantly increase standoff zones and secure remote areas through broadcasting powerful voice commands with high intelligibility over greater distances."
The LRAD 2000X is the world's loudest AHD and broadcasts powerful warning tones and multi-language voice messages in a 30°- 60° beam over distances up to 5.7 miles. Designed to meet stringent Mil-Spec standards, the LRAD 2000X features greater broadcast coverage area, rugged construction, low operating power requirements, all-weather use, flexible mounting and several options.
"We're pleased to receive this order and look forward to the results of the trial installation," added Brown. "With civil unrest continuing to escalate around the world, the LRAD 2000X offers governments and their security agencies a more humane and cost-effective means to control their sovereign borders."
