Blackhawk Helicopter-Mounted LRAD 1000X used in Colombian Campaign

LRAD Corporation, a provider of acoustic hailing devices (AHDs), announced recently that a LRAD 1000X system mounted on a UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter was deployed by the Colombian Air Force recently in their “Audacity and Will” campaign.

Rodrigo Rivera, Colombia’s Minister of Defense, launched the campaign in late June that seeks to return guerrillas back to civilian life after years of living in and conducting combat operations from jungle locations. Senior operational commanders from the Colombian Air Force, Army, Navy and National Police joined Mr. Rivera in launching the campaign.

The main component of the campaign was the use of the LRAD 1000X to communicate demobilization messages to guerrillas hidden in Colombia’s rain forests.Rivera issues demobilization messages to guerrillas through the LRAD 1000X mounted on UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter.

Blackhawk Helicopter-mounted LRAD systems are highly effective in quickly covering large areas with voice communications and instructions,” commented Tom Brown, president and CEO of LRAD Corporation. “This is another innovative use of airborne LRADs.”
