LRAD Licentiate of the Royal Academy of Dance (TM) orders this month totaling $846,000, including a $690,000 order for the U.S. Army's 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment An armored cavalry regiment (ACR) is a regiment of the United States Army or United States National Guard organized for the specific purposes of reconnaissance, surveillance, and security. deploying to support Operation Iraqi Freedom. The LRAD orders are being delivered this quarter.
ATC's vice president of government and force protection systems, Carl Gruenler, said, "Due to LRAD's success in supporting military operations other than war Operations that encompass the use of military capabilities across the range of military operations short of war. These military actions can be applied to complement any combination of the other instruments of national power and occur before, during, and after war. Also called MOOTW. , and its flexibility in meeting various mission requirements, the U.S. armed services are evaluating the formal program acquisition path for LRAD."
"Furthermore, the Department of Defense has shown significant interest in the advanced fielded prototype of our new Medium Range Acoustic Device (MRAD mrad millirad; one thousandth (10-3) of a rad.
millirad. A non-SI unit now replaced by the gray. (TM))."
ATC plans to introduce this new member of its LRAD product family this summer. MRAD will be about half the size and weight of LRAD, and is optimized for land and vehicle-based operations. MRAD is expected to be particularly effective on armored vehicles for urban warfare, shorter-range checkpoints and access denial, plus multiple applications for local, national and international law enforcement.
LRAD is ATC's proprietary long-range hailing and warning, directed acoustic device designed to communicate with authority and exceptionally high intelligibility in a 15-30 degree beam. LRAD is used to issue verbal challenges with instructions in excess of 500 hundred yards in a focused beam with a follow up warning tone to influence behavior or determine intent. Effective ranges of over 1,000 yards are being reported from U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard vessels stationed in the Persian Gulf.
Gruenler concluded, "Beyond MRAD, we are working with agencies and companies on developing enhanced versions of LRAD to solve the increasingly difficult challenges associated with protecting high-value critical infrastructure as well as national and international borders. We believe extensions of our proprietary LRAD technology can play a vital role in deploying and effectively operating advanced security systems and fighting the global war on terrorism Terrorist acts and the threat of Terrorism have occupied the various law enforcement agencies in the U.S. government for many years.
