Liberty Defense Begins Walkthrough Security Trials at Toronto Pearson

Liberty Defense Holdings has commenced beta testing of its HEXWAVE walkthrough security detection portal with the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) at Toronto Pearson International Airport.

This makes Toronto Pearson the first airport in Canada to trial the HEXWAVE walkthrough security detection portal.

HEXWAVE uses 3D radar imaging and artificial intelligence to detect and identify metallic and non-metallic concealed weapons and threats without the need to stop and remove keys, phones or other items from pockets.

The trial will take place in multiple areas of the airport, including an employee area and an entrance from the terminal parking garage at the perimeter of the airport.

Dwayne Macintosh, Director of Corporate Safety and Security for the GTAA said:

“The GTAA prioritises security and keeping ahead of the latest threats. At the same time, we value passenger and staff experience and look to next-generation technology to be able to balance both considerations. We look forward to trialing HEXWAVE and its potential to enhance safety at Toronto Pearson.”

Liberty Defense will use the beta site to further test and train the system to continue improving its AI machine learning algorithms.

Liberty is also working with the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to evaluate HEXWAVE’s ability to screen aviation workers at a TSA designated airport in the future.

Bill Frain, CEO of Liberty Defense said:

“The HEXWAVE’s ability to act as an additional layer of security at airports, extending the perimeter of the secured area to include the entrance to the airport itself, is an advantage. We are thrilled to be working with the GTAA as it continues to take an innovative and forward-looking approach to security and customer experience.”

The testing at Toronto Pearson began on 1 November and will continue for a period of two weeks.
