Singapore Changi Airport Orders Additional LRAD Systems

SAN DIEGO, July 11, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Genasys Inc. (NASDAQ: GNSS), the global leader in Protective Communications, today announced a new LRAD systems order from Singapore Changi Airport (Changi). Changi has used Genasys’ Long Range Acoustic Devices since 2021 to prevent birds from hitting planes and passenger jets during takeoffs and landings when aircraft are most vulnerable to bird strikes.

Aircraft bird strikes cause $1.2 billion in estimated damage annually. The Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia (CAAM) recently issued a safety alert due to a surge in bird strikes at Malaysia’s airports. CAAM’s chief executive officer urged Malaysian airport operators to explore the use of modern technologies, including radar systems and acoustic devices, to detect and deter birds.

“In addition to LRAD deployments at Changi and other APAC airports, we are working several pipeline opportunities to protect jets, passengers and wildlife in the APAC and European regions,” said David Schnell, VP Global Hardware Sales at Genasys. “Manually operated or integrated with remote command and control centers, LRAD is a humane bioacoustic deterrent that has proven highly effective in preventing aircraft bird strikes near runways.

“When integrated with millimeter band avian radar, LRAD systems automatically detect and deter birds entering runway control zones by broadcasting a wide variety of intense, directional sounds and predator calls to safely steer birds away from aircraft during takeoffs and landings,” continued Mr. Schnell.

Long Range Acoustic Devices are in use around the world preserving wildlife, controlling bird incursions, and cost effectively protecting assets. LRAD systems are easily programmed to broadcast a near infinite variety of tones and predator calls to ensure against habituation and safely deter wildlife up to 3,000 meters away.
