Liberty Defense Achieves Key Milestones and Accelerates Development Plans
Vancouver, BC and Atlanta, GA – March 25, 2021 – Liberty Defense Holdings Ltd. (“Liberty” or the “Company”) (TSXV: SCAN, OTCQB: LDDFF, FRANKFURT: LD2), a leading concealed threat detection solutions company, is pleased to announce that it has achieved a key product milestone, and as a result of having recently completed its merger with DrawDown Detection, is now accelerating its HEXWAVE platform development timeline.
Leveraging its exclusively licensed video-rate Ultra-Wideband imaging capability out of MIT Lincoln Laboratory, the Company’s first generation AI detection algorithm was recently developed and successfully demonstrated finding threats on people in motion. This milestone is significant as the Company progresses toward its target of fielding Beta units in the first half of 2022.
Mike Lanzaro, CTO of Liberty Defense, comments: “Achieving high levels of security threat screening performance for people while they are in motion is a technology challenge that has yet to be solved for the marketplace. Aman Bhardwaj, our COO, and the core group of engineers at Liberty have made great progress towards this goal over the past twelve months. We are now able to demonstrate not only 3D video-rate imaging but also the real-time automated detection of concealed metallic and non-metallic threats that may be carried into a public venue or other hi-traffic application. Unfortunately, we continue to see a rise in gun violence in the United States, so it is becoming even more important to commercialize products like HEXWAVE.”
The Liberty Defense HEXWAVE platform is a next generation security screening solution that can be used anywhere that crowds gather, including stadiums, schools, hospitals, places of worship, government buildings, warehouses, etc. HEXWAVE offers key advantages over existing technology:
- Automated detection of concealed metallic and non-metallic threats, including explosives and IED’s
- Generates 3D imaging data for Automatic Threat Detection (AI/Deep Learning), reducing the number of “false alarms” leading to pat-downs and delays. Achieves 1,000+ people / hour throughput
- Indoor and outdoor use, while enabling a stand-off and layered security capability
- Contactless and harmless
- Preserves privacy (no personally identifiable information is collected, stored, or shown)
- Multiple configuration options: stand-alone, networked, relocatable / mobile
- Smart IOT functionality and capability to interact / integrate with existing security systems
