Among its many applications, HSS technology enables ship-to-ship communications without breaking radio silence.

Bath Iron Works, a General Dynamics Company, supplies technology and shipbuilding services to the U.S. Navy. General Dynamics employs 43,000 people worldwide and has annualized sales of approximately $10 billion. Elwood G. Norris, Founder of the company, demonstrated voice and music content with exceptional clarity and bandwidth through the latest, proprietary HSS emitter and modulator technologies to shareholders at the meeting in Escondido, California. Patents Mr. Brosnan announced that as of the date of the meeting, the company had been granted nine (9) patents on HSS and has another nine (9) patents pending. Additionally, the company has eight (8) patents pending on its SFT technology and two (2) patents pending on its MFW(TM) subwoofer technology. NAVSEA AWARDS $218,000 RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT CONTRACT TO BATH IRON WORKS AND AMERICAN TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION FOR TEST APPLICATION OF HYPERSONIC(TM) SOUND TECHNOLOGY (SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA - April 12, 2000) - The PMS 400 division of NAVSEA has awarded a $218,000 research and development contract to General Dynamics Bath Iron Works and American Technology Corporation (NASDAQ: ATCO) to test HyperSonic Sound Technology on board a U.S. Navy Aegis Destroyer under construction at Bath Iron Works. HyperSonic Sound Technology, under development in the laboratories of American Technology Corporation in San Diego, California, 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.
