LRAD Corporation, a global leader in long range voice broadcast systems, advanced mass notification, and the Platinum Award Winner for Best Long Range Acoustic Hailing System for Two Consecutive Years in the Annual ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program, is competing for a Third Major Win in the 2018 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program, with the LRAD® 100X-MAG-HS Long Range Communication – High Strength Mag Mount.


The LRAD 100X is a self-contained, portable communication system with a mount containing four high strength magnets that clamp to, and unclamp from, magnetic surfaces with a turn of a knob.


With unparalleled vocal clarity and up to 30db louder than bullhorns, megaphones, and vehicle P.A. systems, the LRAD 100X is also four to six times louder than other acoustic hailers of comparable size and weight.

LRAD’s optimized driver and waveguide technology ensures every message is clearly broadcast, heard and understood, even above engine, crowd, siren, and background noise.

The LRAD warning tone commands attention to the voice messages that follow and provides a safer alternative to non-lethal and kinetic measures for changing behavior.

As part of field and special response team operations, LRAD safely extends the perimeter in friendly or escalated environments keeping the public and officers out of harms way.
