ATC Gets USS Harry S. Truman Contract

Wednesday, March 15, 2006
American Technology Corporation (ATC) received another order for NeoPlanar-based SoundSaber acoustic panels for installation in the hangar bays of nuclear powered aircraft carriers. The order and installation for the USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) comes on the heels of the successful installation of SoundSaber acoustic panels aboard the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69) in December 2005. The aggregate amount of the orders is approximately $405,000. The SoundSaber acoustic panels are a part of a mission critical system for general announcing and emergency notification. The SoundSaber line has passed Grade “A” shock and vibration and received a Common Intelligibility Standard grade of 0.95 out of 1.00; typical outdoor public address systems grade between 0.75 and 0.79. Ken Winter, ATC’s director of NeoPlanar Programs noted, “Hangar bays are one of the toughest acoustic environments since they are essentially big steel rooms. Because our SoundSaber acoustic panels provide outstanding clarity and intelligibility with low total harmonic distortion under the most challenging acoustic conditions, we are experiencing increasing military, government and commercial interest for our NeoPlanar-based product lines.”
