Technomad Military PA Systems in Worldwide Deployment Weatherproof PA systems deliver superior sound quality and durability at lower cost than traditional horn speakers

BOSTON, December 5, 2006 – Technomad Associates, LLC has developed a line of high-powered weatherproof military PA systems being used by U.S., UK, Canadian and other national Armed Forces around the world. These breakthrough systems offer a unique combination of power, compact size, weatherproof construction and clear speech and music reproduction. Durability, quick setup and an efficient price point offer additional benefits. Technomad Military PA systems offer speech intelligibility far superior to traditional horn speaker systems that suffer from inherent distortion and narrow audio bandwidth. Technomad audio systems provide 180 to 360-degree audio coverage up to one mile from the PA, making them ideal for permanent and mobile installations such as training facilities, tent cities, and refugee camps; and mobile applications for on-vehicle use. Their weatherproof construction also allows for permanent installation on ship decks for use as hailing systems. Technomads wide audio dispersion ensures that PA system can address a large area simultaneously in hailing applications, without the ‘dead spots’ common with horn or hyper-directional devices. This is critical for guard-post, mass notification, or other force protection applications.

Intelligibility is crucial in mission critical situations, where clear and articulate escape instructions can limit causalities, said Karl Von Kries, President of Technomad Associates, LLC. Technomad Military PA Systems offer excellent speech clarity over considerable distance while cutting through background noise and eliminating distortions common with horn-based systems. Our systems are also ideal in PSYOPS, training and deception applications because they deliver full-bandwidth output, with deep bass and detailed highs. This is critical for avoiding canned sounding audio in combat simulation or deception operations.

Technomad Military PA systems arrive pre-wired and ready to use, with a typical setup time of 15 minutes or less. Setup can be accomplished by a single operator regardless of audio expertise. All systems are built into rugged flight-cases and are fully weatherproof. CD Protective gasketed lids clamp onto the front of the loudspeakers and the control rack, converting the system into flight-cases ready for convenient transport.
Technomad offers optional digital IP-based Link Kits that allow multiple Technomad PA systems to be networked to form very large-area PA systems (10 square miles or more) without requiring complex programming. Link Kits are available in wireless or Ethernet models. Applications for Link Kit technology include rapidly deployed flight-line PA systems, tent-city paging and warning systems or permanently installed facility-wide mass notification systems. All Technomad systems ship with a pre-wired amplifier and signal processing rack complete with microphones, CD/tape players, speaker stands and cables. The systems provide CD-quality digital audio. System options include wireless microphones, telephone system interfaces, solar and wind power, DC power or ‘euro’ AC power adapters, and the new SuperConductor military MP3 player. The revolutionary SuperConductor provides instant access to over 1500 minutes of MP3-format audio, and also allows the operator to create a schedule for automatic unattended audio playback i.e., Reveille daily at 0600.

Since 1996, Technomad audio systems have been in use with military and government agencies including the White House Communications Agency, Zussman Urban Combat Training Center, Ft. Knox, USMC Parris Island, GTMO, Seymour Johnson AFB, Offutt AFB, Naval Undersea Warfare Centers and dozens of U.S. military facilities worldwide.


Technomad Associates, LLC, founded in 1995, designs and manufactures loudspeaker systems for the professional audio and security / military technology / mass notification industries. The company invented the first reliable full-range military PA systems and now offers eight models with range up to one mile, as well as the SuperConductor military MP3 player and Firefly ultra-lightweight PA system. These products are widely used for Giant Voice / Mass Notification / Big Voice, PSYOPS, MOUT, FEMA CPG 1-17 / UFC 4-021-01 alerting applications, and Force Protection applications.
