LRAD(R) Corporation Receives $710,000 Latin American Prison Security Order

SAN DIEGO, CALIF., Dec. 29, 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 a $710,000 LRAD 1000Xi systems and accessories order for prison security in Latin America.

"LRAD systems fundamentally change the way corrections officers secure prisons, facility perimeters and conduct many operations," commented Tom Brown, President and Chief Executive Officer of LRAD Corporation. "As an instant force multiplier, LRAD frees officers to prevent dangerous situations from escalating."

The superior voice intelligibility and extended frequency range of the LRAD 1000Xi safely alters behavior, disperses inmates, facilitates cell extractions, establishes standoff zones between guards and prisoners, disrupts prisoner communication, alleviates the escalation of force during fights, riots, hostage and barricaded subject situations, and quickly resolves uncertain situations to prevent injuries and save lives.
