The New York Airport will deploy Liberty Defense’s HEXWAVE walkthrough security portal for aviation worker screening.

WILMINGTON, MA & ROCHESTER, NYLiberty Defense Holdings Ltd., a leading provider of next-generation, Artificial Intelligence (AI) based technologies for the detection of concealed weapons and other threats, announce that its HEXWAVE system has been purchased by a major international airport in New York to support its aviation worker security screening program.

“We are thrilled to have received the award following a public tender and to be chosen to support the airport’s aviation worker screening requirements,” said Bill Frain, CEO of Liberty Defense. “The flexibility and comprehensive detection capability that HEXWAVE offers are driving widespread interest in the system from across the aviation sector. It is highly portable and can be rapidly deployed both indoors and outdoors to seamlessly facilitate screening in various areas of the airport.”

In April 2023, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) issued an Airport Security Program National Amendment, which will require U.S. airports to adopt physical screening procedures for employees with access to secure-side areas.

HEXWAVE enables rapid, automated, high-throughput screening using a contactless, walkthrough portal that can detect a diverse range of threats well beyond what enhanced metal detectors on the market can detect. It uses millimeter wave, advanced 3D imaging, and AI to detect all types of concealed threats, including both metal and non-metal items, liquids, powders, plastic explosives, 3D-printed ghost guns, and other novel threats or prohibited items – without the passenger having to divest common items like keys, wallets, or phones.
