August 12, 2010 – EDGEMONT, PA – Peak Beam Systems, Inc. announced today that the company’s high-intensity Maxa Beam Searchlights have been selected with LRAD Corporation’s LRAD-RX® acoustic hailing device as components in the U.S. Navy’s Shipboard Protection System.
Peak Beam’s 12,000,000 CandlePower Maxa Beam Watertight Enclosure System is a fully sealed, computer-controlled searchlight that is capable of illuminating targets at ranges exceeding two miles. As part of the Shipboard Protection System design, LRAD Corporation has developed an integrated remote interface that allows for seamless control and remote positioning of the Maxa Beam and the LRAD® acoustic hailing device.
LRAD Corporation’s proprietary LRAD-RX® enables system operators to detect and broadcast to an intruder over distance. Featuring an integrated Maxa Beam Searchlight, camera, and LRAD Corporation’s robust, IP-addressable full pan and tilt drive for precise aiming and tracking, the LRAD-RX® system can also be integrated with radar to provide automated intruder alerts. The Maxa Beam Searchlight is used to identify and deter targets and the searchlight’s inclusion on the LRAD-RX® platform helps to create increased standoff and safety zones, support peaceful conflict resolution, and potentially prevent the use of deadly force.
