Genasys Receives $2.7 Million U.S. Navy Order for LRAD Maritime Systems

SAN DIEGO, May 15, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --  Genasys Inc. (NASDAQ: GNSS), the global leader in Protective Communications, today announced a $2.7 million LRAD systems order from the U.S. Navy (Navy). The order is part of the Navy’s ongoing replacement of first generation LRADs with new, upgraded long range communication LRAD 1000Xi systems.

“LRAD systems have enhanced Navy ships’ over-the-water communications and self-protection for more than 20 years,” said Richard Danforth, Chief Executive Officer of Genasys. “LRAD provides operators more time and distance to determine the intent of potential threats not responding to radio calls and to initiate and scale escalation of force (EOF) protocols accordingly.”

Mr. Danforth continued, “In addition to the more than 4,000 LRAD systems deployed with the U.S. Military, thirty-one (31) international Navies and Coast Guards are using LRADs for a variety of missions including establishing vessel exclusion zones and restricted areas, port and harbor security, search and rescue, boarding and interdiction operations, and ship self-defense.”

Featuring rugged military construction for reliable operation in extreme maritime conditions, the LRAD 1000Xi delivers audible hails, notifications, warnings and commands that are clearly heard and understood over wind, engine and background noise. LRAD's ultra-intelligible voice messages and attention-commanding alert tones ensure communication from close range out to 3,000 meters (about 1.9 miles) to determine intent, de-escalate dangerous situations and save lives.
