LRAD Corporation (NASDAQ: LRAD), the world's leading provider of long range acoustic hailing devices (AHDs), announced today it has received a new order from the Army National Guard for LRAD 100X™, LRAD 300X™ and LRAD 500X™ systems and support equipment including wireless kits. The order totals $487,000 and is scheduled to ship this quarter.
"We're pleased to continue supplying the Army National Guard with LRADs," commented Tom Brown, president and CEO of LRAD Corporation. "LRAD provides the National Guard with the critical capability of quickly communicating evacuation orders and aid information to weather or CBRN-effected populations when normal communication infrastructure fails. No other AHD delivers such highly intelligible long-range voice broadcasts as the portable, lightweight series of LRAD-X systems."
Rugged and power efficient, LRAD 100X, LRAD 300X and LRAD 500X systems transmit focused, multi-language voice commands and warning tones that can be clearly heard and understood over background noise in any type of terrain and environment over distances from 200 yards to 1.5 miles. The wireless kits provide the Army National Guard with multiple options for deploying LRAD systems in a variety of applications.
Brown added, "Our proprietary LRAD systems broadcast safe, but powerful voice messages and warning tones that help keep soldiers and civilians out of harms way when Army National Guard units are deployed during foreign, national and regional actions and emergencies."
