Genasys Inc. Awarded U.S. Navy SBIR Program Research & Development Project

SAN DIEGO, CA – December 15, 2020 – Genasys Inc. (NASDAQ: GNSS), the global leader in critical communications systems and solutions, today announced that it has received a highly competitive research and development contract from the U.S. Navy (Navy) under its Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program. The Focused Enhanced Acoustic Driver Technologies research will focus on developing smaller, lighter, louder and more cost-effective acoustic driver technologies.

“Genasys’ recognition by the Navy as an acoustic technology research center of excellence is indicative of the strong government/industry partnership we have forged over the last 15 years with the Department of Defense,” said Richard S. Danforth, Chief Executive Officer of Genasys Inc. “We are excited to begin the SBIR Phase I study, which is designed to evaluate technical merit, feasibility and commercial potential of these technologies.”

LRAD systems provide essential communication and scalable escalation of force capabilities for 27 naval forces throughout the world. In uncertain situations or when approaching boats do not respond to radio calls, LRAD systems expand decision time and distance for naval ships to determine intent and respond appropriately and effectively. LRAD systems are used in many naval operations, including ship defense, establishing vessel exclusion zones, port and harbor security, search and rescue, and boarding and interdiction.
