LRAD Corporation (NASDAQ: LRAD), the world's leading provider of acoustic hailing devices (AHDs), announced today that a LRAD 1000X system mounted on a UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter was deployed by the Colombian Air Force recently in their "Audacity and Will" campaign. The main component of the campaign was the use of the LRAD 1000X to communicate demobilization messages to guerrillas hidden in Colombia's rain forests.
Colombia's Minister of Defense, Mr. Rodrigo Rivera, launched the campaign in late June that seeks to return guerrillas back to civilian life after years of living in and conducting combat operations from jungle locations. Senior operational commanders from the Colombian Air Force, Army, Navy and National Police joined Mr. Rivera in launching the campaign.

The Company's proprietary Long Range Acoustic Device(r) systems broadcast powerful multi-language hails and instructions enabling military personnel to clearly communicate over distance on the ground, over water, or from the air. Utilizing advanced sound reproduction technologies and innovative acoustic material, the LRAD 1000X can broadcast highly intelligible voice communications over distances up to 3 kilometers.
"Helicopter-mounted LRAD systems are highly effective in quickly covering large areas with voice communications and instructions," commented Tom Brown, president and CEO of LRAD Corporation. "This is another innovative use of airborne LRADs."
