LRAD Receives $1.1 M in Follow on LRAD Orders from US Navy

LRAD Corporation (NASDAQ: LRAD), the world's leading provider of long range acoustic hailing devices (AHDs), today announced over $1.1 million in follow on LRAD(r) orders from the U.S. Navy. The orders, which consist primarily of LRAD-RX(r) and LRAD 1000XTM systems and support equipment, are scheduled to ship this month and next quarter. The Company's proprietary LRAD-RX and 1000X systems broadcast powerful voice commands and deterrent tones that can be clearly heard and understood over distances up to 2 miles in any type of terrain and environment. Through highly intelligible long-range communication, LRAD enables peaceful conflict resolution and potentially saves lives on both sides of the Long Range Acoustic Device(r). "We innovated LRAD and created the AHD market in response to the October 2000 attack on the USS Cole," stated Tom Brown, president and CEO of LRAD Corporation. "In spite of having plenty of firepower to prevent the attack before it occurred, the sailors on the USS Cole had no way of knowing if their attackers were civilians or terrorists until it was too late. With LRAD, military and commercial security personnel can unequivocally determine the intent of an approaching threat and create standoff zones, thereby providing time and distance to scale their response and make life and death decisions."
