SAN DIEGO, Oct. 7, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LRAD Corporation (Nasdaq:LRAD), the world's leading provider of long range acoustic hailing devices (AHDs), and advanced mass notification systems, today announced the launch of the LRAD® 450XL, the loudest long range AHD offering for its size and weight in the market. The LRAD 450XL uses an enhanced, patent pending technology to provide the output of a unit almost twice its size and weight, with the same high level of clarity and intelligibility consistent with the Long Range Acoustic Device® ("LRAD") product line.
The LRAD 450XL can be used on a tripod, or mounted on small vessels, military and law enforcement vehicles, and Remote Weapon Stations (RWS). The 450XL's small size provides clearer sight lines when mounted on vehicles and greater room for additional devices on integrated escalation of force and perimeter security systems. The LRAD 450XL gives operators the ability to broadcast clear, authoritative verbal commands, followed by powerful warning tones to modify a target's behavior, enhance response capabilities, and provide security personnel with additional time and space to escalate the use of force if necessary. The Company received its first order for the new LRAD 450XL from the New York National Guard for vehicle applications. The order is scheduled to ship during the Company's first fiscal quarter ending December 31, 2014.
"LRAD already offers the most powerful, rugged line-up of AHDs in the market today. The enhanced technology of the LRAD 450XL produces louder, more powerful output in a significantly smaller and lighter weight form factor," noted Tom Brown, President and CEO of LRAD Corporation. "The LRAD 450XL provides a perfect product complement to the most complete lineup of acoustic hailing devices by the world's leading manufacturer and designer of AHDs, LRAD Corporation."
