LRAD Corporation Receives LRAD 360X(TM) Order for Asian Port City Tsunami
Warning Installation

Modular System Broadcasts Highly Intelligible Voice Messages Up to 2 Miles

SAN DIEGO, Calif., Jan. 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LRAD Corporation
(Nasdaq:LRAD), the world's leading provider of long range acoustic hailing
devices (AHDs), announced today it has received a $369,000 LRAD 360X order for
an earthquake and tsunami warning mass notification installation in an Asian
port city. The order resulted from the successful trial installation announced
last June (http://www.lradx.com/site/content/view/2094/55/).

"Legacy warning systems are incapable of providing highly intelligible, life
saving instructions and directions to the local populace," remarked Tom Brown,
president and CEO of LRAD Corporation. "When every second counts, the
powerful, omnidirectional siren and multi-language voice broadcasts from LRAD
360X systems ensure that emergency communications are heard and understood
over large areas, even inside cars and buildings."

The LRAD 360X is the newest system in the Company's proprietary Long Range
Acoustic Device^® (LRAD®) product line. The LRAD 360X broadcasts powerful
emergency/warning sirens and highly intelligible multi-language voice messages
in a 360° pattern over distances up to 2 miles. The LRAD 360X is modular
enabling customization of the broadcast area and mass notification footprint.

"Working with our Asian business partners, we anticipate this will be the
first of many installations in this region," added Brown. "Beyond Asia, we're
pursuing LRAD 360X emergency warning/mass notification business opportunities
with cities, regional districts, ports, school and business campuses, and
military bases."
