Blue Tech to Work for Marines
Genasys Inc. (NASDAQ: GNSS) announced on June 16 that it received a follow-on $9.7 million order from the U.S. Army for LRAD 450XL acoustic hailing devices. The device can send focused, intelligible sound for more than a mile. This is the third order received by the company in fiscal 2021 under the Army’s Acoustic Hailing Device (AHD) program of record.
“Military Police, Transportation Security and PSYOPS units in the Army’s Active, Reserve and Guard will deploy these systems across the full spectrum of conflict, including training, disaster response, and military operations,” said Genasys CEO Richard Danforth. “As the Army’s AHD of choice, the LRAD 450XL provides critical long-range communication and scalable escalation of force capabilities that increase the decision time and distance for military personnel to differentiate between security threats and noncombatants, resolve uncertain situations, and save lives.”
Low profile, lightweight and designed to be mounted on tripods, vehicles, small vessels and Common Remotely Operated Weapon Stations (CROWS), the LRAD 450XL incorporates LRAD’s patented technology to generate the audio output of a unit almost twice its size and weight with the same high level of clarity and intelligibility consistent with the LRAD product line.
