LRAD Corporation develops and delivers directed acoustic products that beam, focus and control sound over relatively short and long distances. The company offers various directional and omnidirectional sound products, which meet a range of requirements from communicating with and deterring threats through distances approximately 600 meters with its hand-held LRAD (Long Range Acoustic Device) 100X to distances approximately 5,500 meters with its LRAD 2000X. The company’s LRAD pioneered a new worldwide market for directional long-range acoustic hailing devices (AHDs), which sell into approximately 70 countries. Technology and Products The company’s LRAD is developed for the U.S. Navy to fulfill a capability gap identified after the USS Cole attack and is deployed by the U.S. Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard, as well as international military services and commercial maritime, commercial security, and public safety organizations worldwide. The company’s LRAD hailing, notification and warning systems feature a 15 to 30 degree acoustic beam and a broadcast range up to 5,500 meters. The company’s LRAD systems also feature a rugged construction that allows the product to meet the environmental requirements of military applications. The company’s LRAD systems could emit voice commands, prerecorded messages in multiple languages and deterrent tones to create large safety zones allowing operators to determine the intent, influence the behavior and gain compliance from approaching vessels, vehicles or personnel. The company’s LRAD-X product line provides a range of systems from single user portable to permanently installed, remotely operated RX units. It has added new models to meet specific customer requirements and to enable the company to expand its technology into new markets. The company has also added new features, such as wireless capability, recordable microphones, integrated and remote electronics packages, and various amplifier configurations. In 2014, the company introduced the LRAD 450XL, which uses new, patent pending speaker technology and is the AHD. In 2015, the company introduced the latest addition to its LRAD directed product line, the LRAD 500RX, which is engineered and designed on its proprietary pan and tilt system; and is a compact version of its successful LRAD 1000RX. The company continues to improve its product design to improve the durability and performance of its units. The company’s LRAD products have been competitively selected through other commercially available systems by the U.S. and various foreign militaries. The company’s LRAD-X product line includes the following: LRAD Directional Products LRAD 2000X—launched in 2012 to meet the requirements of larger security applications—is the company’s major AHD and broadcasts highly intelligible voice communication that could be clearly heard and understood over distances up to 5,500 meters. This unit is designed to be effective in perimeter and border security applications. LRAD 1000X—selected by the U.S. Navy as its AHD for Block 0 of the Shipboard Protection System—could be manually operated to provide long distance hailing and warning with highly intelligible voice communication. This unit is available in both fully integrated and remotely operated electronics. LRAD 500X—selected by the U.S. Navy and U.S. Army as their AHD for small vessels and vehicles—could be transported to provide security personnel long-range communications and a hailing and warning capability where needed. LRAD 450XL—designed, developed and launched in 2014—is the loudest long range AHD for its size and weight. The LRAD 450XL uses an improved patent pending technology to provide output in a smaller form factor with the same high level of clarity and intelligibility consistent with the LRAD product line. The LRAD 450XL is designed to provide a communication solution for small vessels, military and law enforcement vehicles, remote weapon stations and helicopters. LRAD 300X—a mid-range AHD developed for small vessels and manned and unmanned vehicles and aircraft—is available with both fully integrated and remotely operated electronics. L
