LRAD Corporation Ships First LRAD 360X™ Order for Asian Earthquake and Tsunami Warning Trial Installation

Modular System Broadcasts 360 Degrees Over 2 Miles Also Targeted for Wildlife Protection Applications

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 21, 2012) - LRAD Corporation (NASDAQ: LRAD), the world's leading provider of long range acoustic hailing devices (AHDs), announced today it has shipped its first LRAD 360X order to an Asian customer for a trial earthquake and tsunami warning mass notification installation.

"Unlike our directional LRAD® systems, the LRAD 360X broadcasts siren sounds and voice messages 360 degrees over a wide area," commented Tom Brown, president and CEO of LRAD Corporation. "We developed the LRAD 360X based on input from customers requiring a uniform solution for their emergency mass notification systems and wildlife protection applications including land and sea-based wind farms and oil platforms."

The LRAD 360X is the latest addition to the Company's proprietary Long Range Acoustic Device® product line. The LRAD 360X broadcasts powerful emergency/warning siren sounds, multi-language messages and a near infinite variety of wildlife tones and predator calls in a 360° pattern over distances up to 2 miles. The LRAD 360X is modular enabling customization of the broadcast area footprint for mass notification systems and wildlife protection requirements.

"The LRAD 360X creates new business opportunities for the Company including new installations and upgrading older mass notification infrastructure incapable of providing clear voice communication," Brown added. "We see an expanding global market for emergency/warning mass notification systems, which incorporate LRAD's highly intelligible voice message capability to broadcast warnings and instructions before, during and after severe weather events, natural disasters or man-made emergencies."
