SAN DIEGO, CA – May 12, 2020 – Genasys Inc. (NASDAQ: GNSS), a global provider of critical communications systems and solutions, today announced a $12.6 million follow-on order from the U.S. Army (“Army”) for LRAD® 450XL acoustic hailing devices (“AHDs”), spares and accessories. This is the Company’s third LRAD 450XL order received under the $110 million Army AHD program. Another order is expected later this quarter.
“The LRAD 450XL provides the Army with critical communications and scalable escalation of force capabilities,” said Richard Danforth, Chief Executive Officer of Genasys Inc. “These LRAD systems will be fielded with Active Duty, Reserve, and National Guard Military Police, PSYOPS and transportation security units.”
Low profile, lightweight and designed to be mounted on tripods, vehicles, small vessels, and Common Remotely Operated Weapon Stations (CROWS), the LRAD 450XL incorporates Genasys’ patented technology to generate the audio output of a unit almost twice its size and weight with the same high level of clarity and intelligibility consistent with the LRAD product line.
Defense, homeland security and public safety agencies throughout the world use LRAD systems to deliver audible voice messages and alert tones with industry-leading vocal clarity and distance to safely warn and notify, establish large standoff zones, determine intent, resolve uncertain situations, and save lives on both sides of the Long Range Acoustic Device®.
