LRAD Corporation a provider of long range acoustic hailing devices (AHDs) has received orders totaling over US$1-million for Asian public safety and international LRAD-RX™ oil industry security installations. The orders are scheduled to ship this quarter.


The Company's proprietary LRAD-RX turns passive surveillance systems into remote first responders. Featuring a camera, high intensity searchlight (optional) and a robust, IP-addressable full pan and tilt drive for precise aiming and tracking that can be integrated with radar to provide automated security alerts, the LRAD-RX broadcasts highly intelligible warnings and deterrent tones that can be heard and understood over distances up to 2 miles.

Through the use of powerful, multilingual voice commands and warning tones, LRAD systems safely create increased standoff zones, determine intent, support peaceful conflict resolution, and save lives on both sides of the Long Range Acoustic Device®.

"Our international business continues to expand with public and commercial safety officials increasingly recognizing LRAD® as an essential capability that's been missing from their security protocols," remarked Tom Brown, president and CEO of LRAD Corporation. "LRAD systems fill a critical response gap between the limited range and intelligibility of bullhorns/portable P.A. systems and severe measures including kinetic non-lethal or lethal weapons. LRAD's unprecedented range, sound quality and ease of use provide security personnel time and distance to scale their response and make lifesaving decisions."
