Liberty Defense Announces HEXWAVE System Acquisition in Latin America

HEXWAVE will be deployed at a Juvenile Correctional Facility in Chile
WILMINGTON, Mass., May 8, 2024– (“Liberty” or the “Company”), a leading technology provider of Artificial Intelligence (AI) based next generation detection solutions to protect secure locations against prohibited weapons and other threats, is pleased to announce that its HEXWAVE system has been purchased by a Juvenile Correctional Facility in Santiago, Chile, with deployment scheduled for this summer.
The system was purchased by Setronix Chile S.A., a leading security company with over 30 years of experience deploying and maintaining cutting-edge technology solutions for security applications throughout Chile. The system will be operated by SENAME, the National Minors’ Service (Servicio Nacional de Menores), a government agency managed by the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights. The technology will use it to secure a juvenile correctional facility in Chile.
HEXWAVE is a next-generation, walkthrough, contactless threat detection system that uses low-power radar imaging, coupled with AI and an advanced computing platform, to rapidly detect concealed threats. It provides automated go/no-go decision support to security operators and can detect all types of concealed weapons, including metal and non-metal weapons, plastics, powders, and other prohibited items.
HEXWAVE is seeing growing adoption in multiple market verticals requiring high levels of security including courthouses, national labs, prisons, government facilities, and ports of entry in aviation and other sectors. HEXWAVE provides a safe and efficient screening solution for juveniles as an alternative to transmission X-rays.
“This is an important award for Liberty as we expand our customer base internationally and into Latin America,” said Bill Frain, CEO of Liberty Defense. We won this tender based on HEXWAVE’s mobility and its ability to safely and efficiently screen for a broad range of threats and prohibited items to secure the safety of all within the correctional facility. We are confident this will lead to more adoption throughout Chile.”
With facilities at Arturo Merino Benítez Airport, Setronix Chilie S.A. is strategically positioned to support security-based operations both in Santiago and in other parts of the country.
SENAME, Ministry of Justice and Human Rights, is a government agency in Chile focused on safety and security in juvenile justice and reintegration. It cares for adolescents and young people who have been in conflict with the law between the ages of 14 and 17.
