SAN DIEGO, CA – August 22, 2019 – LRAD Corporation (NASDAQ: LRAD), a global leader in critical communication systems, today announced it has received $1.0 million in defense orders for the U.S. Air Force and a NATO army. The LRAD 500X and LRAD 1950XL acoustic hailing devices (“AHDs”) that comprise the orders are scheduled for delivery in fiscal 2020 and will be deployed overseas.
“In addition to providing vital communication and scalable escalation of force (“EOF”) equipment to all branches of the U.S. military, LRAD sales are expanding to armed services in Europe,” remarked Richard S. Danforth, Chief Executive Officer of LRAD Corporation. “Our advanced technology, unmatched range and intelligibility, and superior reliability have firmly established LRAD as the AHD of choice for modern military forces.”
The LRAD 500X broadcasts audible voice communications and warning tones that are clearly heard and understood out to a distance of 2,000 meters. Rugged, compact and lightweight, the LRAD 500X easily mounts on tripods, vehicles and vessels to provide defense forces with essential long-range communication and scalable, non-kinetic EOF capabilities.
The LRAD 1950XL is the Company’s newest AHD and features LRAD’s patented XL driver technology, which increases broadcast distance by 70 percent over standard drivers. The superior voice intelligibility and extended broadcast range of the LRAD 1950XL ensure voice messages are clearly heard and understood in any language out to 5,000 meters.
From combat and counterinsurgency to disaster response and humanitarian missions, LRAD’s critical communication and EOF capabilities are being deployed throughout the world by U.S. and international defense forces.
