SAN DIEGO, CA – June 29, 2021 – Genasys Inc. (NASDAQ: GNSS), the global leader in critical communications systems and solutions, today announced international LRAD 1000Xi systems orders totaling $1.0 million for critical infrastructure protection and wildlife preservation.
Offshore oil platforms in Nigeria will be equipped with LRAD 1000Xi systems to communicate to and warn away security threats, encroaching fishing boats, and approaching vessels not responding to radio calls.
“Flags, lights and flares are ineffective in stopping encroaching boats from entering restricted areas around oil & gas platforms,” said Richard S. Danforth, Chief Executive Officer of Genasys Inc. “LRAD’s long-range alert tone and exceptionally clear voice broadcasts provide platform security personnel more time to determine the intent of approaching vessels and scale responses appropriate to the incursions.”
The orders also include LRAD systems integrated with avian radar from DeTect, Inc. to humanely deter waterfowl and other wildlife from entering hazardous water and waste areas at a large mining operation in northern Canada.
“LRAD systems use directionality and focused acoustic output to broadcast a near infinite variety of predator calls and warning tones to ensure against wildlife habituation,” added Mr. Danforth. “In addition to significantly reducing waterfowl deaths at mining operations, LRADs are in use throughout the world to preserve wildlife and protect critical assets at airports, air bases, oil & gas facilities, and fisheries.”
LRAD systems broadcast audible voice messages and tones with exceptional clarity from close range to 5,000 meters. Rugged, reliable, and built to withstand harsh environments, LRAD systems help resolve uncertain situations and save lives.
