LRAD systems are in service in more than 100 countries and 500 U.S. cities in diverse applications, including Public Safety, Law Enforcement, Defense, Border and Homeland Security, Critical Infrastructure Protection, Fire Rescue, Emergency Management, Maritime and Port Security, and Wildlife Control and Preservation, and many more.


Today’s military forces are required to support the full spectrum of missions from combat and counterinsurgency to disaster response and humanitarian assistance. Regardless of the assigned mission, clear communication and scalable escalation of force (EOF) are critical to success. LRAD innovated acoustic hailing devices (AHDs) in response to the deadly October 2000 attack on the […]

Law Enforcement

LRAD is a game changer for communication between the police and the public. If we can effectively communicate…we reduce the chances of anybody getting hurt. Sgt. J.E. Armstrong, Greensboro, NC PD Clear, Concise Critical Communications. LRAD is fundamentally changing the way law enforcement agencies conduct everyday duties and elevated risk operations. LRAD systems ensure law […]

Fire & Rescue

When Fire Rescue teams need to communicate critical information to individuals or groups in harm’s way, LRAD systems broadcast real-time messages with exceptional vocal clarity from close range out to 2,000 meters. Unlike conventional loudspeakers, bullhorns and outdoor P.A. systems that disperse sound in all directions and have limited loudness and poor vocal quality, LRAD’s proprietary […]

Homeland / Border Security

Security measures that enhance public safety and help secure critical infrastructure are top priorities in today’s escalated threat environment. In any operational scenario, the products and systems that homeland security agencies use must be versatile, rugged, easy to operate and cost effective. LRAD turns passive surveillance systems into first responders by broadcasting critical information, instructions […]

Critical Infrastructure

Throughout the world, LRAD systems are enhancing security at power plants, dams, embassies, government facilities, water treatment plants and other critical infrastructure. Most systems with cameras, thermal imaging, motion detectors and other sensors only watch. Remotely operated LRAD-RX systems provide the vital ‘first response’ capability missing from observe-only integrated security systems. Operating across an IP […]

Maritime Communication & Safety

In response to the deadly October 2000 attack on the USS Cole, Genasys created the acoustic hailing device (AHD) market by developing and launching its proprietary LRAD technology and systems. Broadcasting highly intelligible voice communications and warning tones with focused acoustic output, LRAD systems determine the intent of vessels not responding to radio calls and […]

Wildlife & Assets

The high costs of repairing and replacing commercial assets due to wildlife-related damage, costly penalties and bad publicity associated with harming wildlife, and the ineffectiveness of legacy deterrents, highlight the need for safer, more effective wildlife preservation and control solutions. Due to their limited range and repetitive sounds, over time wildlife become habituated to cracker […]
