Liberty Defense begins beta testing at YYZ

November 2, 2022  By  SP&T Staff

Liberty Defense Holdings has announced that beta testing with the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) at the Toronto Pearson International Airport (Pearson) commenced as of Nov. 1, and will continue for  two weeks.

Toronto Pearson will be the first airport in Canada to trial the HEXWAVE walkthrough security detection portal. The airport plans to operate the trial in multiple areas of the airport by conducting voluntary screening in an employee area and a location at the perimeter of the airport, including an entrance from the terminal parking garage.

Liberty Defense will use the beta site as an opportunity to further test and train the system to continue improving HEXWAVE’s Artificial Intelligence machine learning algorithms, while also gathering user feedback.

HEXWAVE is a walkthrough screening portal that uses 3D radar imaging and Artificial Intelligence technologies to detect and identify metallic and non-metallic concealed weapons and other threats, providing security operators with a real-time, automatic go/no-go decision. There is no need to stop and remove keys, cell phones, or other items from pockets while passing through the system. The system protects privacy by not personalizing image data, and images can never be seen by an operator. The operator only receives real-time information about threat type and location as people pass through the system.
