SAN DIEGO, Feb. 4, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LRAD Corporation (NASDAQ: LRAD), the world's leading provider of long range acoustic hailing devices (AHDs), today announced the receipt of a $763,000 follow-on order for LRAD devices and accessories to be used for bird mitigation and wildlife preservation and control for an international mining concern. The order is expected to be shipped by June 30, 2014.
"LRAD systems have proven highly effective in keeping birds and other wildlife away from hazardous areas," commented LRAD President and CEO Tom Brown. "Whether manually operated, integrated into remotely controlled command and control centers or enhanced with avian radar for automated incursion response, LRAD safely and humanely preserves wildlife and protects critical assets."
For wildlife applications, LRAD systems use directionality and focused acoustic output to clearly transmit a variety of tones, sounds and predator calls from 200 meters to over 2 km. For additional information, please refer to: http://www.lradx.com/site/content/view/268/110.
"We are very pleased that the success of earlier installations has led an international mining concern to expand their use of LRAD systems," Brown added. "The near infinite varieties of tones and sounds that can be recorded and broadcast through our Long Range Acoustic Devices® prevent birds from becoming habituated to the repetitive noises produced by legacy wildlife control measures including propane cannons and cracker shells."
