Long Range Acoustic Device LRAD 100X
The Long Range Acoustic Device LRAD 100X is a self-contained, handheld, portable, loud hailer that outperforms megaphones and most permanent public address systems. The LRAD 100X is an easily transportable communication tool that overcomes the background noise of vehicles, vessels, sirens, and boisterous crowds to issure the message is clearly heard and understood. Maximum power in a small package - the LRAD 100X is the world's best solution for on-scene and tactical communications.
LRAD 100X is 10-21 decibels (dB) louder than the most competitive megaphones. Systems of comparable size and power do not match the intensity of the LRAD 100X, which is four to six times louder. Optimized driver and waveguide design insures clear and loud voice communication so every syllable is understood. The warning tone provides a non-lethal deterrent, shapes behavior, and supports intent determination while preserving time for force escalation.
This unmatched acoustic device comes in a rugged package that can be operated in driving rain. Interfaces include a standard microphone, as well as a rugged media player designed for easy operation in demanding environments. The LRAD 100X is a handheld device powered by a built-in rechargeable battery for use by law enforcement, special forces, emergency responders to name a few. Applications include on scence commanders, hostage negotiators, crisis response and HAZMAT teams, wildlife control.
The Long Range Acoustic Device LRAD 100X is an acoustic hailing and warning device comprised of a directional acoustic array (beam width 30°) that is designed for long-range communication and unmistakable warning. It produces highly intelligible voice transmissions over 88 dB of background noise beyond 250 meters and is capable of communicating over 600 meters away in a benign environment. It produces a maximum continuous output of 136 dB SPL at 1 meter.
The technology behind the Long Range Acoustic Device LRAD 100X was developed to support the protection and exclusion zones around U.S. Navy warships following the October 12, 2000 small-boat terrorist attack on the USS Cole off the coast of Yemen killing 17 sailors and causing $240 million in structural damage to the $1 billion ship. Long Range Acoustic Devices are currently used around the world on sea (military, private and commercial vessels), on ground (tanks, armored vehicles, military/police vehicles, structures), and in the air (helicopters).
