Liberty Defense Secures Exclusive License for Covert Weapons Detection Technology
ATLANTA, Oct. 29, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Liberty Defense Technologies, (“Liberty Defense”), a leader in security and weapons detection solutions is announcing that it has secured an exclusive license from MIT Lincoln Laboratory, as well as a technology transfer agreement, for patents related to active 3D imaging technology that are packaged into the HEXWAVE product.
The HEXWAVE product offers key advantages over other systems:
- Modular Design: Modular architecture is scalable to match varied customer throughput and facilitate multiple entry point screening
- AI-Enhanced, 3D Imaging for Real-Time Concealed Threat Images: 3D image information and machine learning produces high fidelity, real-time concealed threat images that are assessed using artificial intelligence (AI). This enables it to address both outdoor and indoor security challenges
- Covert Design: Sensors can be concealed within walls or built discreetly into the design of almost any entryway to maintain desired aesthetics
- Layered Defense: Greater depth of detection range provides security teams with the stand-off time to counter threats before they infiltrate the premises
This technology can stand alone or can be used in conjunction with other security products. Its sleek, refined industrial design makes it simple to install, easy to maintain, and discreet to operate.
The market size for weapons detection systems is expected to grow to USD $11 billion by 2025 (Homeland Security Research Corp.).
“Currently, there is a significant gap that must be addressed in urban security threat defense. HEXWAVE provides a wider perimeter for early detection beyond just the point solution typically positioned at an entrance of a facility. This essential layer will enable security measures to be proactively deployed to detect a threat before it transitions to an attack condition. Liberty Defense can fill this gap,” said Bill Riker, CEO of Liberty Defense.
Since 2015, there have been well over 300 mass shooting events in the U.S., many of which have taken place within enclosed areas. (gunviolence.org)
“Public venues, corporate or secured buildings, land transportation, schools, hotels, casinos, places of worship, malls and other urban infrastructure can utilize this technology to avoid further tragedies while providing safety and peace of mind to our communities,” added Riker.
