Safely & Remotely Securing Borders


Today’s threat environment has placed increasing demands on border security agencies to protect the public, secure borders and appropriately respond to situations ranging from preventing unlawful incursions to providing humanitarian assistance.

Throughout the world, border security agencies are deploying LRAD systems to enhance their ability to safely secure borders, conduct special operations, facilitate search and rescue missions, and interdict and prevent acts of terrorism, human trafficking and drug smuggling.

LRAD’s highly intelligible, multilingual voice and powerful warning tone broadcasts are clearly heard and understood from close range up to 3 kilometers.

LRAD Systems

LRAD systems go anywhere communication is needed. From the hand portable LRAD 100X to larger systems mounted temporarily or permanently on towers, vehicles, trailers or helicopters, LRAD is versatile, self-contained and does not rely on external power or communication infrastructure.

Integrating remotely operated LRAD-RX tower mounted systems with radar, cameras and other sensors provides added security for fenced and unfenced border areas. The ability to remotely hail and warn provides border security agencies a proactive approach to securing borders not available through camera-only solutions.

Air Mobile Security Solutions

Airborne border patrol units are transforming how remote border areas are monitored and protected. Isolated areas inaccessible by vehicles are now watched and guarded from the air.

Helicopter mounted LRADs provide airborne units a multifaceted long-range communication system to enhance their ability to safely conduct special operations, search and rescue missions, and interdict and prevent acts of terrorism, human trafficking and drug smuggling.

LRAD’s optimized driver and waveguide technology ensures every broadcast cuts through wind, engine, rotor wash and background over distances ranging from 50 meters up to 3 kilometers.

Through broadcasting highly intelligible live or pre-recorded multilingual commands and deterrent tones, the intent of illegal border crossers is determined and shaped appropriately.

LRAD systems insure that notifications, warnings, commands and instructions broadcast to suspects and victims by airborne border units are clearly heard and understood.

Fixed Site / Perimeter Security & Response

Throughout the world, LRAD-RX systems are being deployed by border agencies for perimeter security and surveillance applications. Legacy security and surveillance systems with cameras, thermal imaging, motion detectors and other sensors only watch.

The remotely operated LRAD-RX provides the vital capability missing from observe-only integrated security systems. Operating across an IP network, the LRAD-RX turns passive surveillance systems into remote first responders by identifying, warning and deterring potential security threats from the safety of command and control centers, creating a fully operational unmanned perimeter security solution.

Using powerful, highly intelligible commands and deterrent tones to safely establish and enforce large standoff zones (up to 3 kilometers), LRAD-RX systems determine a security threat’s intent and provide border security personnel more time to initiate an elevated response to unauthorized incursions if necessary.

Featuring an integrated zoom camera, high intensity searchlight and an IP-addressable full pan and tilt drive for precise tracking and targeting, the LRAD-RX can also be integrated with radar to provide automated intruder alerts. By turning passive surveillance systems and command and control centers into remote first responders, the LRAD-RX provides a permanent perimeter presence, reduces false alarms and protects border security personnel from potentially deadly situations.

BORSTAR / Search & Rescue



Border Patrol Search, Trauma, and Rescue (BORSTAR) Unit operations are conducted in varying climates and topographies. Missions last a few hours to prolonged FEMA supported natural disaster operations lasting several weeks. These scenarios vary in difficulty from simply locating victims needing water and first aid to complex rescues requiring requiring officers to render greater assistance including helicopters rescues in remote areas and canyons.

LRAD goes anywhere communication is needed. From the hand portable LRAD 100X to larger systems mounted temporarily or permanently on towers, vehicles, trailers or helicopters, LRAD systems are versatile, self-contained and don’t rely on external power or communication infrastructure.

LRAD’s highly intelligible, multilingual messages and alert tones are clearly heard and understood over wind, engine, rotor wash and background noise in any type of terrain and environment from close range to 3 kilometers.

LRAD provides BORSTAR units and border agents a multifaceted communications capability deployable on the ground or in the air to quickly find, assure, aid and rescue victims.

By enabling border officers to communicate over distance, LRAD systems facilitate and enhance search & rescue operations.

Virtual Acoustic Fence



Long Range Acoustic Device systems turn border command and control centers into instantaneous first responders by remotely identifying, warning and deterring potential border incursions. Integrating LRAD-RX tower mounted systems with radar, cameras and other sensors provides added security for fenced and unfenced border areas. The ability to remotely hail and warn provides border security agencies a proactive approach to securing borders not available through camera-only solutions.

LRAD’s highly intelligible, multilingual voice and powerful warning tone broadcasts are clearly heard and understood from close range up to 3 kilometers. By creating large standoff zones around sovereign borders, land based and drone-mounted LRADs resolve uncertain situations peacefully and help prevent deadly confrontations.

BORTAC & Special Operations

The Border Patrol Tactical (BORTAC) Unit provides an immediate response capability for emergency and high-risk incidents requiring specialized skills and tactics.

LRAD systems provide BORTAC agents a multifaceted communications capability deployable on the ground and in the air for special operations including high-risk warrant service, performing reconnaissance and surveillance, airmobile operations and maritime operations.

LRAD’s optimized driver and waveguide technology ensures every multilingual voice and special effects sound broadcast is clearly heard and understood over wind, engine, rotor wash and background noise at distances ranging from 50 meters up to 3 kilometers.

LRAD systems are unique in providing BORTAC agents a mobile, self-contained, self-powered communications capability that is being used worldwide by foreign and domestic border agencies.
