LRAD Corporation (NASDAQ: LRAD), the world's leading provider of long range acoustic hailing devices (AHDs), announced today it has received a new $1.9 million order from the U.S. Army Reserves for LRAD 500X™ and LRAD 100X™ systems and support equipment including vehicle mounts and wireless kits. The order is scheduled to ship this quarter.
"We're pleased to receive this latest order from the U.S. Army Reserves to equip more of their vehicles, including MRAPs and HMMWVs, with LRAD systems," commented Tom Brown, president and CEO of LRAD Corporation. "Using our proprietary long range communication technology to broadcast highly intelligible warnings and commands helps keep soldiers safe within their armored vehicles and can prevent innocent civilian casualties by creating large standoff zones, unequivocally determining the intent of security threats at distance and limiting the escalation of force by resolving uncertain situations peacefully."
Lightweight and power efficient, LRAD 100X and LRAD 500X systems transmit focused, multi-language voice commands and deterrent tones that can be clearly heard and understood over background noise in any type of terrain and environment over distances from 500 yards to 1.5 miles. The vehicle mounts and wireless kits provide the U.S. Army with multiple options for deploying LRAD systems in a variety of applications.
Brown added, "After extensive testing and rigorous deployments in theaters of operation, LRAD systems continue to be the U.S. Army Reserves AHD of choice for vehicle mounted solutions."
