Liberty Defense to beta test Hexwave with U.S. airline

2022-09-29 12:42 ET - News Release


Liberty Defense Holdings Ltd. has signed a collaborative agreement to begin on-site beta testing of Hexwave early next month with one of the largest United States airlines.

Beta testing will take place in the airline's employee screening area at a major U.S. international airport. The goal for this test deployment is to gather feedback from the airline on Hexwave while continuing to train the system's AI (artificial intelligence) algorithms on a diverse employee base.

Hexwave walk through screening system can automatically detect hidden weapons and other potential threats, including both metal and non-metal items such as 3-D-printed ghost guns and improvised liquid, powder or plastic explosives. Hexwave leverages technologies such as millimeter wave, video-rate 3-D imaging, and artificial intelligence to detect potential threats, and provides security operators with a real-time, automatic go/no-go decision.

"We are collaborating with a leading U.S. airline that is a very forward-looking company and a trailblazer when it comes to incorporating the latest innovative technologies to continuously improve its customer service, safety and overall operations," said Bill Frain, chief executive officer of Liberty Defense. "We are excited to work with this new beta partner, which came as a result of the airline visiting our headquarters in Wilmington where they were able to see the Hexwave in action."

Expanding aviation employee security protocols is a priority for airlines and airports today wanting to mitigate potential insider threats, and detect a growing range of weapon and threat types in a seamless screening experience.

Liberty Defense's beta trial program also includes testing with a Major League Baseball (MLB) stadium, a large state university, one of the largest Hindu temples in North America and major airports. Beta testing is planned to continue at these various sites until the end of Q4 2022.
