SAN DIEGO, Dec. 23, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LRAD Corporation (NASDAQ:LRAD), the world's leading provider of Long Range Acoustic Devices® and advanced ONE VOICE® mass notification systems, today announced it has received opening orders totaling over $735,000 for perimeter security and public safety in Asia and for a southeastern U.S. utility installation. The orders are comprised primarily of LRAD 1000X, LRAD 1000RX and LRAD 500RX systems.
"These orders open the door to larger business opportunities with these customers due to the increasing importance of perimeter security and public safety for homeland, border and critical infrastructure security applications," remarked Tom Brown, President and Chief Executive Officer of LRAD Corporation. "Legacy systems with cameras, thermal imaging, motion detectors and other sensors only watch and alert. LRAD turns passive systems into first responders by creating a fully operational perimeter security solution that can warn, determine intent and deter threats remotely or from safe, standoff distances."
Using highly intelligible voice commands and warning tones to safely establish and enforce large restricted areas ranging from 50 meters up to 5 kilometers, LRAD systems provide greater coverage of borders and critical assets with fewer personnel, reduce false alarms, protect security response teams and save lives.
