Liberty Defense Advances its AI and Threat Detection Capabilities for Production
Wilmington, MA USA – June 20, 2023 – Liberty Defense Holdings Ltd. (“Liberty” or the “Company”) (TSXV: SCAN, OTCQB: LDDFF, FRANKFURT: LD2A), a leading technology provider of AI-based next generation detection solutions for concealed weapons and threats, is pleased to announce its next generation walkthrough screening HEXWAVE™ technology has been enhanced to include new configuring options for seamless and effective screening of concealed metallic and non-metallic threats. The HEXWAVE is currently in production to support existing orders that will be delivered this summer. In addition to existing orders, the company is actively quoting to meet demand in the urban/commercial security market and US aviation to meet the new TSA Aviation Worker Screening Program needs.
In support of the initial production, Liberty Defense has also accelerated its second-generation imaging platform in time for inclusion in the release, enabling a true walkthrough configuration in addition to the walk-turn-go configuration that has been deployed to date. The walk-turn-go configuration remains a highly effective option for customers in certain applications requiring specific security protocols with lower throughput needs.
The new imaging front-end, readied in time for production by Liberty’s best-in-class engineering team, allows for the capture of higher resolution millimeter wave image data to be combined with our advanced AI detection algorithms into one seamless optimization process. Image data collected to date now exceeds 100 terabytes, which is used to train the algorithms for the optimal detection of metallic and non-metallic threats.
“Unlike systems that rely on metallic signatures, we’ve chosen to solve a problem that no others have, one that includes the creation of millimeter wave imagery and AI threat detection algorithms,” said Michael Lanzaro, President and CTO of Liberty Defense. “We’ve developed the world’s first threat detection platform that detects metallic and non-metallic threats, including 3D printed ghost guns and liquid, powder, or plastic explosives, while allowing for people to continuously flow through the system. And all without the need to divest benign items such as keys, wallets, and mobile phones. Our team of talented engineers, many of whom were responsible for the development and deployment of airport millimeter wave systems, are excited to be introducing the continuous flow configuration as part of our initial production release, increasing people throughput while eliminating the need to turn and pause in the system.”
