NAVSEA has awarded a $218,000 research and development contract to General Dynamics Bath Iron Works and American Technology Corp. to test HyperSonic Sound Technology on board of U.S. Navy Aegis Destroyer under construction at Bath Iron Works. HyperSonic Sound Technology, under development in the laboratories of American Technology Corp. in San Diego, is a revolutionary sound reproduction system.
The most important quality of HSS(TM) is the ability to direct or focus sound into a tight beam, similar to the beam of light from a flashlight. No other audio reproduction device available today provides this powerful feature. Not since the development of the "cone" loudspeaker more than 75 years ago has any technology provided such significant departure from conventional speakers and such a remarkable approach to the reproduction of sound.
