Liberty Defense has entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with Rapiscan Systems to sell and service its HEXWAVE screening system internationally in security and aviation markets.
According to the company, Rapiscan has initially agreed to purchase 20 HEXWAVE systems to satisfy first sales, with Liberty to deliver five HEXWAVE systems before the end of 2023 to meet initial demand.
As part of the distribution agreement, Rapiscan will add the HEXWAVE walkthrough people screening system, which uses AI and machine learning to seamlessly detect weapons and other threats in real-time, to its security product and services portfolio.
The Rapiscan agreement expands Liberty’s international reach to include market penetration of HEXWAVE in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the Asia/Pacific region, including Australasia.
“After evaluating the technology, we look forward to adding Liberty Defense’s HEXWAVE to our product portfolio to provide turnkey security solutions to our growing customer base internationally,” said Ted Alston, President of Rapiscan Detection.
“Our focus at Rapiscan is to meet demanding security requirements while offering customers outstanding value for their security screening operations and we are delighted to have the HEXWAVE’s unique detection application to now sell to our customers.”
“We are thrilled to join forces with Rapiscan, a worldwide leader in the security industry and look forward to expanding the reach of HEXWAVE internationally,” said Bill Frain, CEO of Liberty Defense.
“Over the past several months, we have seen demand increase significantly for HEXWAVE for enhanced screening at checkpoint applications and it was important for Liberty to enter into this significant agreement with Rapiscan to meet that demand.”
