LRAD Corporation Receives LRAD 300X(TM) Order For Colombian Navy Coastal Patrol Boats

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LRAD Corporation (Nasdaq:LRAD), the world's leading provider of long range acoustic hailing devices (AHDs), announced today it has received a $323,000 order for LRAD 300X systems and support equipment. The LRAD 300X systems will be installed on Colombian Navy coastal defense patrol boats.   "We're pleased to receive another follow-on order from Colombia, which highlights the opportunity for international sales growth of LRAD® products," remarked Tom Brown, the Company's president and CEO. "The Colombian Navy will be employing the LRAD 300X systems to broadcast warnings and critical information to vessels from safe, stand off distances. During suspect boat interceptions, LRAD systems ensure naval authorities' commands and instructions are clearly heard and understood over engine, wind and background noise to help control these situations and avoid violent confrontations."   The order from the Colombian Navy follows prior orders from the Colombian Air Force, Army, and National Police, which use helicopter-mounted LRADs for communicating demobilization messages to guerrillas living in the rain forests. The country's National Police also use vehicle mounted LRADs for civil defense missions and emergency response communications.   The LRAD 300X is a low profile, lightweight, long-range communication solution for use on armored vehicles, common remotely operated weapon stations (CROWS) and small vessels. Easily transported, the 300X provides military and law enforcement personnel a highly effective hailing and warning capability. LRAD 300X operators have the ability to issue clear, authoritative voice commands and deterrent tones to enhance response capabilities.    About LRAD Corporation
