SAN DIEGO, Feb. 2, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LRAD Corporation (NASDAQ: LRAD), the world's leading provider of Long Range Acoustic Devices® and advanced ONE VOICE® Mass Notification Systems (MNS), today announced a $1.1 million follow-on LRAD 100X systems and accessories public safety order from a Southeast Asian country. Scheduled for delivery this fiscal year, the country continues to upgrade from legacy communication products to LRAD's long range and highly intelligible voice capabilities. "More and more public safety agencies are selecting the LRAD 100X as their portable communication device of choice," commented Tom Brown, President and Chief Executive Officer of LRAD Corporation. "In addition to being 20 – 30 decibels louder, the self-contained LRAD 100X is substantially more intelligible than bullhorns and vehicle-based public address systems." From the portable LRAD 100X to larger systems temporarily or permanently mounted on vehicles, vessels or helicopters, LRAD enhances public safety and security. Public safety agencies around the world, including over 200 U.S. cities, counties and states, use LRAD systems and support equipment. About LRAD Corporation
