Palm Beach, FL – October 11, 2022 – FinancialNewsMedia.com News Commentary – Over the past few years due to global conflicts and the COVID virus, a lucrative market for the sale of concealed weapon detection systems has been created thanks to remarkable advancements made possible by the integration of sensors, imaging technologies, and actuators. The urgent need for contemporary, cutting-edge concealed weapon detectors has been brought on by growing terrorist threats that target public places for mass attacks. Without any physical contact between security personnel and the person being screened, security screening in conjunction with solutions for concealed weapons detection are used to find covert threats and illegal items. A recent report from Future Market Insights projected that the market for devices that detect concealed weapons is expected to grow from US$ 637.8 million in 2022 to US$ 1.17 billion by 2031. The market for hidden weapon detection systems is anticipated to expand at a strong CAGR of 6.9 percent between 2022 and 2031. The report said: “There is a critical need for concealed weapon detection systems in the aviation industry, the government sector, and commercial spaces including educational institutions, banks, and shopping centers because anti-social groups pose a threat to public safety. Terahertz body scanners can recognize and precisely locate dangers, such as concealed weapons and contraband, that are concealed in bags or beneath a person’s clothing… The rise of cross-border terrorism and an increasing number of terrorist outfits have given every government a reason to invest in the best and the most advanced concealed weapon detection technologies.” Active companies in the markets this week include Liberty Defense Holdings Ltd. (OTCQB: LDDFF) (TSX-V: SCAN), Patriot One Technologies (OTCQX: PTOTF) (TSX: PAT), Evolv Technology (NASDAQ: EVLV), Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: KTOS), Raytheon Technologies (NYSE: RTX).
Future Market Insights continued: “High efficiency sensing technologies are required for effective security screening and weapon detection at high public throughput locations like courthouses, airports, museums, and prisons. Companies are being driven to develop and incorporate high speed sensors into security screening solutions by the demand for effective concealed weapon detection. Configurable… body scanning systems have been widely used globally due to the urgent need for security screening with concealed weapon detection at ports and borders amid escalating political unrest. It is possible to combat illegal activities and terrorism at airports, train stations, metro stations, national borders, and other locations by integrating autonomous and covert sensing resources. During the forecast period, high-quality, autonomous sensing equipment integration is anticipated to significantly contribute to the growth of the global market for concealed weapon detection systems.”
Liberty Defense Holdings Ltd. (OTCQB: LDDFF) (TSXV: SCAN) BREAKING NEWS: Liberty Defense Receives $1,750,000 Contract Award from TSA for Development of AIT Screening Upgrades – Liberty to develop a retrofit kit for improved airport security checkpoint passenger screening with next generation, advanced imaging technology (AIT) – Liberty Defense Holdings Ltd. (FRANKFURT: LD2A) (“Liberty” or the “Company”), a leading technology provider of detection solutions for concealed weapons and threats, is pleased to announce that it has received an award from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) for $1.75M for the development of a prototype High-Definition Advanced Imaging Technology (HD-AIT) upgrade kit for testing on an AIT passenger screening system.
The HD-AIT next-generation people screening technology platform for threat detection uses high-definition imaging and Artificial Intelligence, resulting in greater detection, with a lower false alarm rate for a better passenger experience.
The TSA, an agency of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, is responsible for all security screening conducted at airports in the United States. TSA’s On-Person Screening program aims to detect a growing range of threats, with fewer false alarms and less physical contact. In addition to enhanced detection, the HD-AIT body scanners are anticipated to help improve passenger experience and move people through the checkpoint more seamlessly.
“We are excited to partner with TSA on this critical initiative to help develop the next generation of passenger screening,” says Liberty CEO Bill Frain. “Liberty shares the same mission as TSA for On-Person Screening and deploying future state capability, with the focus on detecting more threats and providing an overall better experience for the traveling public.”
Liberty previously licensed a millimeter wave-based, High-Definition Advanced Imaging Technology (HD-AIT) body scanner and a shoe screener technology in March of 2021. Both technologies were developed by researchers at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), funded by U.S. Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate (DHS S&T) on behalf of the Transportation Security Administration mission. Liberty is now developing the technology in house with its experienced team of engineers. CONTINUED… Read this and more news for Liberty Defense at: https://www.financialnewsmedia.com/news-scan/
