Liberty Defense Holdings Ltd. (SCAN:TSX.V; LDDFF:OTCQB; LD2:FSE) announced in a news release it has engaged another entity, Canada's Metro Toronto Convention Centre (MTCC), to collaborate in beta testing HEXWAVE, Liberty's concealed weapons detection solution. The MTCC will be the first convention center to do so.
The MTCC, a large complex in downtown Toronto, encompasses a 700,000-square-foot convention center and the 1,232-seat John Bassett Theatre. Also, the facility connects to the 586-room InterContinental Toronto Centre hotel, the Union Station railway, the SkyWalk bridge and PATH, the underground pedestrian tunnel system.
"Convention centers are an essential part of a nation's critical infrastructure because they serve as hubs for business events, entertainment, transportation and community pride. They are also a key source of innovation on how people can interact at a mass level," Liberty Defense CEO Bill Riker said in the release. "So it is especially key to help provide a sense of security and safety in an ever-changing threat environment."
According to the company, "HEXWAVE uses 3D radar imaging and artificial intelligence primarily to detect and identify weapons, as well as other threats and anomalies. It enables security teams to detect these threats at the perimeter of a property without obstructing the movement of large groups of people. By extending the detection space and widening the perimeter, HEXWAVE enables a layered defence strategy, which provides security teams with more time to manage threats."
"Extending the security perimeter of convention centre facilities is a great example of how a layered defense approach can be implemented. We believe that HEXWAVE's ability to operate in both indoor and outdoor environments, in combination with its modular and scalable design, will help reinforce critical infrastructure safety while maintaining a positive customer experience," added Riker.
