LRAD(R) Corporation Named "Best Long Range Acoustic Hailing Service" by
Government Security News
SAN DIEGO, July 23, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LRAD Corporation (NASDAQ: LRAD),
the world's leading provider of long range acoustic hailing devices (AHDs),
today announced that the LRAD 2000X was named as the "Best Long Range Acoustic
Hailing Service" in the Government Security News ("GSN") 2014 Airport,
Seaport, Border Security Awards Program. The LRAD 360X Mobile Mass
Notification System was also named as a finalist in the "Best Mass
Notification Solution" category.
"We appreciate the recognition provided by the GSN judges, naming the LRAD
2000X as the Best AHD. When the LRAD 2000X is fully equipped with a camera,
radar and high-powered white light, it is a perfect, cost effective sensor
solution for port and border security," noted Tom Brown, President and CEO of
LRAD Corporation. "The LRAD 2000X is the world's loudest and longest range
acoustic hailing device, and an integral part of airport, seaport and border
perimeter security programs."
Operated from a command and control center, the LRAD 2000X provides a cost
effective way to protect perimeters of high-risk assets such as utility,
chemical and nuclear power plants. As opposed to just being able to see a
potential threat, LRAD 2000X operators have the ability to issue clear,
authoritative verbal commands, followed by powerful deterrent tones, to
enhance response capabilities. With a maximum output of 162dB (measured at one
meter) and directed coverage up to 5,500 meters, the LRAD 2000X ensures that
operators instructions will be heard.
Also recognized was the standard LRAD 360X Mobile Mass Notification System
("Mobile System"). This unit is a fully integrated, self-contained, ruggedized
trailer that uses a telescoping/folding mast to deploy an LRAD 360X to reach a
maximum height of 30 feet, with area coverage up to 5.3 kilometers. The system
was developed to provide emergency warnings and communications for a number of
applications including natural disasters such as tornados, hurricanes,
flooding and wildfires. The Mobile System can be transported where it is
needed and fully deployed in minutes.
