Cruise ship attacked by pirates used sonic weapon

This story has been fairly well covered, but many of the reports don't talk about the sonic weapon that they used to repel the attackers.
On 2600's 'Off the Wall' program it was stated that the technology was provided by Sonic Works, but they don't list a dish based device as mentioned in a few reports. The USA Today report states the weapon was  American Technology Corp.'s LRAD device. (not too much info on their site)
The passengers were extrodinarily lucky that the crew responded so quickly with this device, and that the ship was healthy enough to haul ass out of the area. The crew should be commended. I'm kind of surprised that the TV news I saw around the time of this incident didn't cover this better.
