Genasys Secures New Department of Defense Order for Long-Range Acoustic Devices

Communication systems provider Genasys announced on Thursday that the U.S. Department of Defense has placed new orders for its two long-range acoustic device models worth $1.6 million.

The orders include LRAD-1950XLs for the U.S. Special Operations Command in Europe, LRAD 360-XT mobile communications trailers for the African units of the U.S. Navy and spares for Navy elements in the United States.

According to Genasys CEO, Richard Danforth, the San Diego, California-based company has supplied the DOD with over 5,000 LRAD systems since 2005, which “have become an integral part of military communications protocols”.

The LRAD systems are used in over 100 countries and 500 American cities for diverse applications, including law enforcement and defense, Genasys said.

In a separate press release Tuesday, the company announced that the Vietnam Ministry of Defense has placed a $1.9 million order for its LRAD-500X-RE and 1000XI for the country’s warships.

Its LRAD deliveries to Vietnam amount to $4.8 million worth since 2019, Genasys added.
