LRAD-RX® Being Installed at Pentagon Main Entrance

Pentagon to Utilize Remotely Operable Acoustic Hailing Device in Security Upgrade

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 12, 2011) - LRAD Corporation (NASDAQ: LRAD), the world's leading provider of acoustic hailing devices (AHDs), announced today that it has received an order for a LRAD-RX installation at the main visitors' entrance of the Pentagon as part of a security upgrade. The order was received from SimplexGrinnell, a Tyco International company and a longtime leader in life safety and property protection.

"Having our LRAD-RX system being installed at a prominent entrance to help secure the Pentagon is noteworthy," commented Tom Brown, president and CEO of LRAD Corporation. "The LRAD-RX will provide Pentagon security officials the ability to remotely issue warnings and instructions that can unequivocally be heard and understood in any outdoor environment. By broadcasting highly intelligible voice commands and powerful warning tones, the LRAD-RX creates standoff and safety zones that can prevent uncertain situations from escalating into major security breaches."

Featuring the Company's robust, IP-addressable full pan and tilt drive for precise aiming and tracking, the directional broadcasts of the LRAD-RX enable security officers to communicate instructions and warnings with 100% intelligibility in any language to individuals or large groups.

Brown concluded, "LRAD's inclusion in this security upgrade highlights its ability to fill a crucial communications gap in the perimeter security of critical infrastructure."
