U.S. defense forces are required to support a full spectrum of missions from combat to counterinsurgency to disaster response and humanitarian assistance.
Regardless of the assigned mission, clear communication and scalable escalation of force (EOF) capabilities are critical to mission success.
Compact, lightweight and designed for applications ranging from fixed security installations to mid-sized vehicles and vessels, the LRAD 500X-RE easily mounts and transports to provide law enforcement, homeland security, and defense personnel unparalleled long-range communication and safe, scalable non-kinetic escalation of force.
The U.S. Navy and U.S. Army’s acoustic hailing device (AHD) of choice for small vessels and vehicles, the extended frequency range of the LRAD 500X-RE ensures broadcasts are clearly heard and understood on the ground, from the air or at sea in all environments.
- Rugged, military tested construction
- Low power requirements
- All-weather use
- Simple to operate
- Increased coverage with single operator
- Safer alternative to non-lethal and kinetic measures
- HD Camera (optional)
DIRECTIONALITY, POWER EFFICIENCY & RANGE

LRAD SoundSaber 300 (SS300) line array loudspeakers deliver general announcements and emergency notifications with exceptional vocal clarity.
The unique acoustic dispersion pattern of the SS300 alleviates reflection and echoing to provide uniform acoustic coverage throughout broadcast areas.
LRAD’s advanced line array speaker technology ensures broadcasts are clearly heard and understood in high ambient noise environments.
The LRAD SS300 features the industry’s best speech intelligibility and is easily configurable for any large indoor or outdoor space.
The SS300 is the loudspeaker of choice for the hangar bays on all U.S. Navy aircraft carriers and large deck amphibious warfare ships.
LRAD SS300 loudspeakers are housed in robust, all-weather enclosures designed for permanent outdoor installation.
- Robust, all weather enclosure for permanent outdoor installation
- Galvanized steel mount with elevation adjustment
- P.A. and emergency notification in one system
- Unparalleled vocal clarity and intelligibility
- Alerts,communicates and informs during emergency situations
- Easily modulated audio output
LRAD systems broadcast deterrent tones and voice messages with exceptional clarity from close range out to 3 kilometers.
LRAD is the long range voice communication and EOF system of choice for defense forces around the world.
“The LRAD 500X systems further fulfill fleet requirements to equip Navy surface combatants with LRAD’s long-range communication and escalation of force capabilities,” commented Richard S. Danforth, Chief Executive Officer of LRAD Corporation.
“The SoundSaber systems are slated for installation on an amphibious assault ship.”
“Navy surface combatants, submarines, and the Naval Construction Battalions (Seabees) continue to utilize LRAD systems in support of their missions.”
LRAD systems help determine the intent of vessels not responding to radio calls, alter threat behavior and enlarge vessel standoff zones for ships underway, pier side or at anchor.
LRAD’s unmatched long-range communication and voice broadcast intelligibility is also used during search and rescue operations, boarding vessels, and interdictions at sea.
LRAD SoundSabers are the speaker array of choice for hanger bays on Navy aircraft carriers and large deck amphibious assault ships.
The Naval forces and Coast Guard fleets of 24 countries fill the critical gap between initial engagement and the escalation of force with LRAD’s unparalleled long-range communication and scalable, non-kinetic deterrent capability.
