American Technology and Moog jointly develop ruggedized remotely operated LRAD system

SAN DIEGO, 11 August 2006. American Technology Corporation, known for its proprietary directed acoustic and innovations expertise in military and commercial directed sound products and solutions, and Moog Inc., with expertise in the design, development, and production of motion control systems and motion simulators, have jointly developed a ruggedized remotely controlled directed, focused acoustic energy system for use in remotely operated commercial and military security applications.

SAN DIEGO, 11 August 2006. American Technology Corporation, known for its proprietary directed acoustic and innovations expertise in military and commercial directed sound products and solutions, and Moog Inc., with expertise in the design, development, and production of motion control systems and motion simulators, have jointly developed a ruggedized remotely controlled directed, focused acoustic energy system for use in remotely operated commercial and military security applications.

The directional acoustic system, known as the Remotely Controlled Long Range Acoustic Device (LRAD-R), is a turnkey security solution that enables users to determine the intent of potential security threats, as well as communicate over distance (up to or in excess of 500 meters) from a remote location. T

he LRAD-R features high acoustic output (peak acoustic levels of 151db at the emitter unit).

LRAD-R consists of an LRAD emitter head, pan/tilt device for precise audio targeting, on-board camera to aid in the tracking/aiming of the acoustic energy, software, and all associated cables and power electronics with a simple two-cable connection for all power requirements and all standard and optional signals.

Optional accessories, such as laser rangefinders, laser dazzlers, and spotlights can be integrated into the system. The system has been specifically developed for use in a variety of harsh military and commercial applications, including maritime, gas, and oil (platform and pipeline protection), large utility and chemical plant infrastructures, and other applications.

LRAD-R is expected to be available in Q4 2006 from Moog Inc., American Technology Corporation, and ATC's worldwide resellers.
