DENVER - Liberty Defense Holdings Ltd. in Wilmington, Massachusetts, a technology provider of AI-based next generation detection solutions for concealed weapons and threats, announced that Denver International Airport will perform a customer trial of the HEXWAVE system for a week in the Great Hall at the south employee checkpoint for use in conducting aviation worker screening at its airport facilities.

HEXWAVE uses millimeter wave, advanced 3D imaging, and AI to detect concealed metallic and non-metallic weapons such as liquid, plastic, and powder explosives, 3D printed guns, and other prohibited items – without having to remove common items like cell phones or keys. The system allows for rapid, automated screening using a high throughput, contactless, walkthrough portal. The system integrates smart IoT functionality for connectivity to existing security systems

"Denver International Airport has always been on the forefront of deploying next generation technologies, especially for safety and security applications," said Bill Frain, CEO of Liberty Defense. "We look forward to working with Denver to enhance the screening requirements and demonstrate an effective and efficient security process utilizing our HEXWAVE technology."

Earlier this month, Liberty Defense announced that Los Alamos National Laboratory received a pair of HEXWAVE screening portals. Located in northern New Mexico, Los Alamos is a multi-program, federally funded research and development center for the National Nuclear Security Administration of the U.S. Department of Energy. It has 900 individual facilities and over 17,000 employees who work on site.
