Denver International Airport will trial Liberty Defense's Hexwave system for a week in the Great Hall at the south employee checkpoint.

Hexwave uses millimetre wave, advanced 3D imaging, and AI to detect concealed metallic and non-metallic weapons such as liquid, plastic, and powder explosives, 3D printed guns, and other prohibited items – without having to remove common items like cell phones or keys. The system facilitates rapid, automated screening using a high throughput, contactless, walkthrough portal.

Denver International Airport has always been on the forefront of deploying next generation technologies, especially for safety and security applications,” said Bill Frain, CEO of Liberty Defense. “We look forward to working with Denver to enhance the screening requirements and demonstrate an effective and efficient security process utilising our Hexwave technology."

Liberty's Hexwave product, for which the company has secured an exclusive license from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), as well as a technology transfer agreement for patents related to active 3D radar imaging technology, provides modular, scalable protection to provide layered, stand-off detection capability of metallic and non-metallic weapons.
