SAN DIEGO, May 14, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LRAD Corporation (NASDAQ: LRAD), the world's leading provider of long range acoustic hailing devices (AHDs), today announced the launch of the LRAD Mobile Sound Barrier. The LRAD Mobile Sound Barrier is a vehicle mounted speaker system that can be secured to any armored vehicle, VIP vehicle, or other government or corporate vehicle, to create a 360° deterrent zone to safely and effectively warn and ward off threats. Two initial orders have been received from a U.S. Government agency and additional development costs are being absorbed by the customer in order to customize the product for permanent mounting on certain government vehicles.
"LRAD's Mobile Sound Barrier brings the same unsurpassed vocal clarity, performance and reliability of traditional LRAD systems to vehicle mounted emergency warning and security systems," noted Tom Brown, President and CEO of LRAD Corporation. "The LRAD Mobile Sound Barrier broadcasts highly intelligible, multi-language instructions and warnings in a 360° radius over distances of approximately 65 meters for coverage of approximately 13,300 square meters around the vehicle."
The LRAD Mobile Sound Barrier is remotely operated from inside the vehicle, and a magnetic mounting option allows for quick deployment and removal with the control unit located inside the vehicle. When a LRAD Mobile Sound Barrier equipped vehicle is threatened, occupants can issue an alert tone and/or broadcast live voice or pre-recorded warnings to clear the immediate area around the vehicle. If the threat persists, powerful deterrent tones can be activated to create a virtual barrier of sound, warding off any advance or escalation by the threat. With a maximum deterrent tone volume of 125 dB, the LRAD Mobile Sound Barrier creates a safe stand-off zone between the vehicle and the threat allowing the occupants to quickly egress out of a potentially dangerous situation.
