Toronto Pearson would be the first airport in the world to purchase the HEXWAVE walkthrough security detection portal to seamlessly screen for potential threats

WILMINGTON, Mass and TORONTO, Feb. 21, 2023 /CNW/ - 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 it has received a Letter of Intent from the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) to acquire the HEXWAVE™ for use at Toronto Pearson International Airport, subject to further evaluation.

Toronto Pearson is located in Mississauga, west of Toronto, in Ontario, Canada. It is Canada's largest airport and the sixth-most-connected airport in the world.

"As the first airport in the world to test HEXWAVE, we see the potential benefits of utilizing this innovative solution as part of our broader airport security program following further testing and evaluation," said Dwayne MacIntosh, Director, Corporate Safety and Security, GTAA. "We were impressed with the HEXWAVE's seamless screening during beta testing and look forward to working with Liberty Defense on the enhanced detection the HEXWAVE would bring to the airport."

HEXWAVE uses millimeter wave, advanced 3D imaging, and AI to detect all types of concealed metallic and non-metallic weapons and other prohibited items – without having to divest common items. The system allows for rapid, automated screening using a high throughput, contactless, walkthrough portal. 

"As airports continue to look at innovative ways to enhance security, technology like HEXWAVE provides a flexible solution that can be quickly deployed and moved to areas inside and outside the airport," said Bill Frain, CEO of Liberty Defense. "We are thrilled that the GTAA will be continuing to work with Liberty Defense to bring the HEXWAVE to the Toronto Pearson airport."

Several key members of the Liberty Defense team, including CEO Bill Frain, have previously been involved in the development and mass deployment of key screening technologies that are commonly found today at airports around the world.
