LAX Trials Liberty Defense’s HEXWAVE Security Screening Portal

Liberty Defense has announced that Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is trialling its HEXWAVE security solution for aviation worker screening.

HEXWAVE uses millimetre waves, advanced 3D imaging and AI to detect concealed metallic and non-metallic threats without requiring people to remove common items such as phones or keys from their pockets.

This system allows for secure but rapid screening using a high throughput, contactless, walkthrough portal.

Bill Frain, CEO of Liberty Defense said:

“The HEXWAVE technology provides a flexible screening solution that can be rapidly deployed to various areas within and outside airport facilities, as well as improve screening efficiency. This makes the system an ideal option for enhancing aviation worker screening protocols, and we are excited that LAWA will evaluate the HEXWAVE with the goal of adding to their existing security program.”

Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) has now begun a week-long customer evaluation of the HEXWAVE solution for conducting employee screening at LAX’s Tom Bradley International Terminal.

In total, LAWA operates three airports, LAX, Van Nuys Airport, and the LA/Palmdale Regional Airport, employing thousands of aviation workers. LAWA maintains its own police department, the Los Angeles Airport Police, which is responsible for the security programs at these facilities.

Chief Cecil Rhambo, Chief of Police at Los Angeles World Airports said:

“We take security measures and the efficiency of screening very seriously at our airports, and our approach is to look to security technology that can help us continue to stay ahead of the curve. The mobility of the HEXWAVE system and its ability to detect non-metallic and metallic threats are features we look forward to evaluating during this trial phase to help enhance our employee screening capabilities.”
