The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has posted a blog entry about "Advanced Imaging Technology Automated Target Recognition". ATR is software that is used with full-body scanners in airports. Supposedly it offers a higher degree of privacy than the current machines now used in airport security screening areas. See the TSA blog here.
Unfortunately, the use of a technical name and promises of better privacy still doesn't disguise the fact that you have a man or woman looking at your image as seen through the full-body scanners. Members of congress are uncomfortable with the invasion of privacy and don't hesitate to question the TSA on this topic.
Doesn't "Advanced Imaging Technology Automated Target Recognition" sound less threatening than "Full Body Scan"? Hmmmmmmm.
