The LRAD 1000Xi is a power-efficient, long-distance communication system designed for applications ranging from critical infrastructure protection to territorial water, border and port security, and large vessel and vehicle installations.

Featuring a rugged carbon fiber emitter head integrated with electronics and amplification, the LRAD 1000Xi comes standard with an MP3 Control Module for playing recorded messages and an all-weather microphone for live broadcasts.

The MP3 Control module also enables remote operation of the device from safe locations.

Superior voice intelligibility and an extended frequency range ensure broadcasts are clearly heard and understood over wind, engine, and background noise.

The LRAD 1000Xi provides a long-range communications capability to issue authoritative voice commands and attention-commanding deterrent tones to determine intent, safely enhance response capabilities, modify behavior, and scale the use of force if necessary.
