LIBERTY DEFENSE GRANTED AN FCC ORDER FOR ITS HEXWAVE SECURITY DETECTION SYSTEM
Earlier this month, Liberty Defense Holdings Ltd. was the recipient of an order issued by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) addressing the rules governing the Hexwave system, clearing the path for final certification and commercialization.
Hexwave uses low-power radar imaging and artificial intelligence to detect all types of concealed weapons for high-throughput, walkthrough people screening that responds to evolving threats and the need for socially distanced contactless security. It can be used as part of a layered defence strategy at indoor and outdoor locations so that threats can be detected early, at the perimeter of the property or at checkpoints, without compromising patron or passenger experience.
"This is a significant achievement and is the culmination of a process started over two years ago," said Liberty president and chief technology officer Michael Lanzaro. "We see this action as further validation of our threat screening technology. As we transition into our build of beta systems and subsequent trials, we can do so with the confidence of having a robust platform that meets the screening performance and regulatory requirements customers expect and demand."
The FCC order includes, in part, the following language: "By this order, we grant a request by Liberty Defense Holdings Ltd., [doing business as] Liberty Defense Technologies (Liberty), for a waiver of our rules governing unlicensed ultrawideband (UWB) devices to permit the certification and marketing of its threat detection imaging system. We find that opening a path for the sale and operation of this equipment will allow this system to be deployed to protect Americans against threats in public venues and other high-traffic areas, in furtherance of the public interest, and that operation of this device under the specified waiver conditions poses no greater risk of causing harmful interference to communication services than those devices already permitted under the existing rules." It further stated: "Hexwave devices can provide protection and safety to the American public by passively detecting weapons and other threats in public venues. Thus, we find that the waiver standard has been met."
