Liberty Defense, a technology provider of AI-based detection solutions, has announced that the Los Alamos National Laboratory has purchased multiple units of its HEXWAVE walkthrough security solution for initial testing.

Located in northern New Mexico, Los Alamos is a multi-program, federally funded research and development center for the National Nuclear Security Administration of the US Department of Energy.

It has 900 individual facilities and over 17,000 employees who work on site.

“Security is at the forefront of everything we do at Los Alamos,” said Joe Gustafson, Deployed Security for Los Alamos National Laboratory.

“We’re excited to be working with Liberty Defense and to conduct an initial test of the HEXWAVE system to further assist us in mitigating security concerns and working towards a customized solution for our unique and continuously evolving screening objectives.”

According to Liberty Defense, the HEXWAVE detection solution uses millimeter wave, advanced 3D imaging and AI to detect concealed metallic and non-metallic items and weapons such as liquid, plastic and powder explosives, 3D printed guns, as well as other user defined prohibited items – without having to divest common items allowed by the systems end user.

“Critical infrastructure protection and national security is an area of focus for Liberty Defense,” said Bill Frain, CEO of Liberty Defense.

“We’re excited to be working collectively with Los Alamos to build a platform that addresses their specific needs.”
