Salt Lake City, Utah and Vancouver, BC – May 22, 2019 – Liberty Defense Holdings Ltd. (“Liberty”) (TSXV: SCAN; FRANKFURT: LD2), a leader in security and weapons detection solutions, is announcing that it has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Office of the Utah Attorney General to beta test HEXWAVE in the state.
The Utah Attorney General, Sean Reyes, is an elected constitutional officer in the executive branch of the state government of Utah. The attorney general is the chief legal officer and legal adviser in the state.
“HEXWAVE can be applied in a variety of settings to provide a means to identify possible threats before they advance into attacks. We are excited that the Attorney General of Utah recognizes the potential value of this technology and the opportunity it provides for enhanced security in the state,” said Bill Riker, CEO of Liberty Defense.
The proposed testing with and through the Office of the Attorney General may include, but is not be limited to:
- Sporting and concert arenas, stadiums and Olympic venues
- Primary, secondary and higher education facilities
- Places of worship, facilities and property owned by or affiliated with faith entities
- Government offices, buildings and facilities
- Amusement parks
- Entertainment events, conventions, shows and festivals
The Attorney General has committed to work in Partnership with Liberty to facilitate introductions and advise interested parties and venues on the potential for HEXWAVE technology. The goal of this initiative is to improve public safety for the citizens of Utah.
“We are pleased to be a part of this phase of testing this new product. Innovation in this space is essential as the type and frequency of threats also evolve. We look forward to evaluating the capabilities of the HEXWAVE product,” said Attorney General Sean Reyes.
This beta testing phase is a key part of the product development process for HEXWAVE. The incremental testing of the system in actual facilities can help to ensure that it is aligned to market requirements. Beta testing is expected to begin later in 2019 and progress into 2020.
