SAN DIEGO, Calif., June 23, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LRAD Corporation (Nasdaq:LRAD), the world's leading provider of advanced mass notification and Long Range Acoustic Device® systems, today announced a $672,000 follow-on order for LRAD 1000X systems at an international mining site. The LRAD systems will be integrated with radar from DeTect, Inc., the world leader in avian radar for aircraft bird strike avoidance, avian risk assessment and environmental protection (http://www.detect-inc.com).
"Remotely operated LRAD systems integrated with DeTect's avian radar are being used in several locations to prevent bird landings and wildlife incursions into hazardous water and waste areas," commented Tom Brown, President and CEO of LRAD Corporation. "LRAD dramatically reduces both the number of birds killed and the environmental fines assessed to mining operations when waterfowl deaths exceed government standards."
LRAD systems use directionality and focused acoustic output to broadcast a wide variety of tones and predator calls to ensure against habituation and safely deter wildlife at distances in excess of 2,000 meters. LRAD can be manually operated or integrated into remotely controlled command and control centers. For more information: http://www.lradx.com/application/wildlife-control-preservation/mining/.
Brown concluded, "Preserving wildlife and protecting critical assets associated with mining operations, airports, wind and solar farms, industrial plants, fisheries, and large agricultural concerns hold significant potential for LRAD systems sales growth."
