Liberty Defense has recently confirmed that it has sold its first HEXWAVE system to LINEV Systems US.

LINEV Systems – which plans to use the HEXWAVE unit for client demonstrations and act as a reseller for Liberty with a focus on the corrections and education verticals – is part of the global LINEV Group, which has been a leading provider of X-ray imaging checkpoint security technology for over 15 years.

The portfolio of solutions that LINEV provides is made up of AI-driven X-ray security screening, benchtop scientific instruments and X-ray non-destructive testing (NDT) systems; over 1,000 LINEV transmission X-ray body scanners are deployed in 24 State Department of Corrections facilities across the US.

Bill Frain, CEO, Liberty said: “HEXWAVE is an excellent complement to the LINEV Systems product line-up, offering a touchless, non-ionising, contraband-detection solution suitable for non-inmate screening at corrections facilities; this could include staff, lawyers and other visitors.

“This is a great opportunity to safely provide enhanced security and mitigate any potential threats or other unwanted contraband. This offers us an exciting opportunity to enhance our HEXWAVE AI algorithms to detect corrections industry-specific items of interest.”

HEXWAVE uses millimetre wave, advanced 3D imaging and AI to detect all types of concealed metallic and non-metallic weapons and other prohibited items.

The system allows for rapid, automated screening using a high throughput, contactless, walkthrough portal. Production of the HEXWAVE is scheduled to begin later in Q1 2023 with the delivery of the first units in Q2 2023.
