Maritime Security & Anti-Piracy Product: LRAD Long Range Acoustic Device
LRAD-RX uses its directionality and focused acoustic output to clearly transmit critical information, instructions and warnings well beyond 3,000 meters. Through the use of powerful voice commands and deterrent tones, large safety zones can be created while determining the intent and influencing the behaviour of an intruder.
LRAD-RX can be operated remotely across an IP network enabling system operators to respond to potential threats from a safe environment while creating a complete unmanned perimeter security solution. LRAD-RX accepts intruder position information from other IP-enabled sensor systems to automatically find and track potential threats. LRAD-RXs large safety zone gives security personnel additional time and valuable information if an elevated intruder response becomes necessary.
What is LRAD?
LRAD is the world standard for acoustic hailing devices. No other can match LRAD's demonstrated experience, performance, or reliability with thousands of LRAD units operating in challenging environments worldwide.
LRAD allows you to determine intent at a safe range and have time to react. It is a Critical Part of a Layered Defense that Fulfills the Fundamental Requirement to Hail, Notify & Warn and Provides Deterrence.
It gives Long Range Clear Communication over significant background noise to alert and warn intruders. There are Unmistakable warning tone and messages in multiple languages to ensure your message is received. This enables you to give crystal clear communication at long range with a high intensity and directional sound. Enabling you to:
- Establish intent
- Isolate threats from inadvertent intrusions
- Hail, notify and warn an intruder
- Justifies escalation of force
- Change behaviour
- High intensity tone deters intruder actions
Pirates begin an attack at 500 - 1000 meters away. LRAD Communicates a Warning Tone (Alert) and a Plain Voice message (Multi-Language). This then mean that Pirates:
- Know they have lost the element of surprise
- Know the vessel is prepared
- Know an investment has been made in security
- Believe coalition forces have likely been notified
If a Security Team are present onboard then it enables them to:
- Use deterrent tone (153dB @ 1 Meter)
- Justified in firing warning shots
- Justified in shoot to kill
