AHD1200 1200 Watt Acoustic Hailing Device
The Power Sonix AHD1200 is a palletized, self-contained Acoustic Hailing Device, originally designed for use on Black Hawk-class helicopters. Because the AHD-1200 requires no power or communication connections to the host aircraft, vessel or vehicle, the complete system can be installed in minutes without special tools enabling extremely fast readiness for emergency missions. It is simply the most effective broad area speech projection system available for first responders and military operations.
