HyperSpike HS-Micro Deployed with Los Angeles County Fire Department

COLUMBIA CITY, Indiana (December 11, 2013) - Ultra Electronics USSI is pleased to announce the sale of multiple HyperSpike HS-Micro Long Range Acoustic Hailing Devices to the Los Angeles County Fire Department. This year a surge of HS-Micro units have been delivered for worldwide deployment with police forces, security teams, and life-safety units.

Traditional bull horns and common hailers frustrate the user and listener with messages that are distorted and unclear. With an exceptional STI rating of 0.85 out of 1.0, the HS-Micro™ brings clear and intelligible commands and authoritative messages to the intended target.

“Fire Departments are pleased with the rugged HS-Micro. It’s hot-swappable battery, small size, and high output is an ideal combination for communication when seconds and lives count,” said Gavin Washburn, CEO of Perpetual Solutions Group. “Users love the HS-Micro for its ability to pack away quickly into a transit case and be checked as luggage for rapid deployments. We are receiving consistent positive feedback and expect more orders in the future.”

The HS-Micro packs a peak acoustic output of 140 dB allowing it to penetrate high background noise and to reach an intended target at 550 yards (500 m). With a light-weight and rugged carbon fiber housing, the HS-Micro was designed to withstand harsh environments while providing up to eight hours of battery operation with quick battery change-outs.

Ultra Electronics USSI is an innovative global supplier of highly intelligible, ruggedized, long range acoustic communication devices and mass notification systems. Being deployed world-wide, these products are used in diverse applications such as crowd control, mass notification, border/port security, law enforcement, maritime security, perimeter protection, and more.
