SAN DIEGO, CA September 7, 2023 – Genasys Inc. (NASDAQ: GNSS), the global leader in protective communications systems and solutions, today announced new Long Range Acoustic Device (LRAD) orders valued at $1.6 million from the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD).  These orders will deliver LRAD-1950XLs to the United States Special Operations Command (SOCOM) in Europe, LRAD 360-XT mobile communications trailers to the U.S. Navy in Africa, and various spares to Navy units in the United States. 

The LRAD-1950XL is Genasys’ most powerful LRAD with a range of up to 5,000 meters in ideal conditions.  The LRAD 360-XT is a rapidly deployable, mobile mass notification system that is integrated into a fully self-contained, ruggedized trailer with rechargeable batteries, solar panels, and satellite connectivity.  Both systems broadcast clear instructions, warnings, and alert tones to effectively communicate  and de-escalate potentially dangerous situations.
