Temporary permanent is the new normal in more and more situations today, and the Transportable High-Powered Speaker Station (THPSS) is the answer to that the demand for outdoor situations that require the durability of a permanent solution, but also transportability for a temporary situation.

Acoustic Technology, Inc. (ATI Systems), a world leader in the design, manufacturing, and installation of reliable emergency warning and notification systems, was selected as the 2019 Platinum ‘ASTORS’ Award Winner for Best Mass Notification System Hardware by American Security Today for the Transportable High-Powered Speaker Station (THPSS).

An emergency can happen anywhere and when every second counts, the most effective area-wide warning is an intelligible voice message with information and instructions.

The Transportable High-Powered Speaker Station (THPSS) is a new product for outdoor situations that require the durability of a permanent solution, but also transportability for a temporary situation.

A wide area giant voice system utilizing the THPSS can be deployed in a matter of hours instead of the months required to construct a permanently installed system.

This provides a great temporary communication system designed with the durability of a permanent solution for any geographically dynamic project such as military emergency operations, oil and gas exploration, national border security, sporting events, large public gatherings, construction sites, and locations where a permanent mass notification system is not cost effective.

Temporary permanent is the new normal in more and more situations today, and the THPSS is the answer to that that demand.

The THPSS is the easily portable and rapidly deployable solution for mass notification.

The Annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards are the largest and most comprehensive in the industry.

Their purpose is to recognize the most distinguished vendors of Physical, IT, Port Security, Law Enforcement, First Responders, as well as federal, state and municipal agencies in acknowledgement of their outstanding efforts to keep our nation secure.

“These non-static voice warning towers can be deployed and operational at a moment’s notice, whether it’s an emergency scenario, like the California wildfires or just an everyday situation like a large public gathering or concert.”
