Product SummaryPrint PDF File         
SOS Parabolic Acoustical Listening Systems use innovative technology developed to significantly enhance the ability to hear and identify sounds at distances normally undetectable to the human ear. In addition to extending the effective 'hearing' range, the device can selectively filter out unwanted sound frequency ranges.

Extremely light and portable, the 6 inch or 10 inch unit can be paired with the newly developed filter amplification pack (AmpPac®) to create a revolutionary system. This listening system can be used to detect and locate life signs and other critical sounds during rescue operations. Or it can effectively be used for many commercial and mechanical applications.

Potential Applications
Police - Enhance SWAT deployment and surveillance operations; monitor crisis situations with more intelligent
Firefighters - Locate victims caught in fire and disaster situations with enhanced life-sign detection
Search & Rescue - Detect individuals trapped in collapsed buildings, earthquakes or other natural disasters
Government - Provide technology to support unique applications for Border Patrol, Homeland Security,
  State Department, Port Authority, DEA, FBI, ATF, Customs, Forest Service and Coast Guard
Military - Aid in Target identification, reconnaissance, perimeter surveillance, urban warfare; detect enemy
  presence in caves, houses and distant areas
Commercial Industries - Use in detecting specific mechanical noises
Power Companies - Augment ability to quickly and easily identify power line faults, coolant leaks and gas
Other Applications - Deliver capabilities valuable to public venue crowd evaluation, high-rise stairwell
  monitoring and criminal concealment detection
