Liberty Defense Launches HEXWAVE Product for Commercial Applications
First systems manufactured in the Wilmington, MA facility will be delivered to customer sites in the coming weeks.
Wilmington, MA – August 30, 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 protecting secure locations against prohibited weapons and other threats, is pleased to announce that it has completed production of the first HEXWAVE systems, capable of detecting non-metallic and metallic threats, including 3D printed ghost guns and liquid, powder, or plastic explosives, without having to stop or remove common items like cell phone, keys, and jackets while going through the HEXWAVE™ portals.
Over the past several months, the Company has seen significant demand for the HEXWAVE technology and its backlog is growing, receiving orders from high profile customers like Los Alamos National Labs, Greater Toronto Airports Authority, Elkhart County Courthouse, Smiths Detection, Linev US, and the first international sale to GRASP, Amsterdam. The demand is coming not only from the US aviation employee screening initiative but also from prisons, museums, stadiums, warehouses, government buildings, and other public venues.
“This is a significant milestone and accomplishment for the Company,” said Bill Frain, CEO of Liberty Defense. “We’ve had great support over the years from MIT Lincoln Labs and the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to finalize the design and define performance requirements, but it would not have happened without the expertise and experience of our engineering and operations team in Atlanta and Boston. Years of effort went into developing this truly next generation screening technology, and it is great to know it will be at customer sites soon to protect the public.”
The Company has also signed distribution agreements with key strategic partners for increased market penetration in the aviation and urban security markets.
“Our mission is not done, and we will continue to enhance the software algorithms and AI capability to stay ahead of new threats like 3D printed guns, suicide vests, and other explosive materials that can do harm in public spaces,” added Frain. “We like to think our system is future proof, as we can seamlessly send software updates to our customers once the HEXWAVE is deployed in the field.”
