The demand for long range Acoustic Hailing Devices (AHD) continues to grow as the everyday warfighter requires more non-lethal capabilities and communication tools to ensure mission accomplishment. From a safe distance, the HyperSpike AHD’s help operational forces to hail, warn, notify and determine intent from a potential threat. While AHD’s have been recognized as a successful non-lethal capability, airports, mining operations, law enforcement, and first responders are also utilizing HyperSpike AHD’s.
