14 Apr Genasys announce $1.5 million in naval and port security orders
Genasys a global provider of critical communications solutions has announced $1.5 million worth of international naval and port security orders, including a major naval port in the Middle East.
The undisclosed port in the region ordered remotely operated LRAD 450XL acoustic hailing devices (“AHDs”) and Genasys hardware and software mass notification systems.
The LRAD 450XL will be used for port protection applications and the Genasys systems will provide port-wide communication and emergency mass notification.
In a follow-on order, additional LRAD 950RXL systems were purchased for the frigates of a European naval fleet. A Southeastern European country placed its firstLRAD 450XL systems order. The AHDs will be mounted on coast guard vessels and used in border and territorial water control applications. Further orders from the country are anticipated.
“LRAD systems deliver essential communication and scalable escalation of force capabilities for 26 international naval forces,” said Richard S. Danforth, chief executive officer of Genasys Inc.
“LRAD systems provide naval ports and ships more time and distance to determine intent and distinguish between intruders, terrorist threats, refugees, fishing boats or commercial vessels, and respond appropriately and effectively.”
Featuring an integrated HD camera, a high-intensity, 12 million candlepower searchlight (optional) and a robust, IP-addressable full pan and tilt drive for precise aiming and tracking, the LRAD 950RXL is controlled remotely across an IP network enabling system operators to create a fully functional, unmanned perimeter communication and security solution.
