SAN DIEGO May 11, 2017 LRAD Corporation (NASDAQ: LRAD), the world’s leading provider of acoustic hailing devices and advanced mass notification systems, today announced a $528,000 LRAD 1000X systems order from SGS Canada (http://www.sgs.ca/). The LRAD 1000X systems will be integrated with avian radar and utilized to humanely deter birds and other wildlife from tailings ponds at an oil sands operation. The order is scheduled to ship this fiscal year.
“This order adds to more than 225 LRAD systems previously deployed for wildlife preservation at large mining sites,” commented Richard S. Danforth, Chief Executive Officer of LRAD Corporation. “In addition to significantly reducing waterfowl deaths at mining operations, LRAD systems are being used around the world to preserve wildlife and protect critical assets at airports and air bases, oil & gas facilities, and fisheries.”
