Advanced Imaging Technology (AIT) for Passenger Screening at Airports

"The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) today announced 29 airports which are set to receive recently purchased millimeter wave Advanced Imaging Technology (AIT) machines. The machines will be deployed with new automated target recognition software designed to enhance privacy by eliminating passenger-specific images while improving throughput capabilities and streamlining the checkpoint screening process."

The new machines are designed to enhance air travel security while meeting international health standards for imaging equipment.  Hopefully privacy issues are taken into consideration with the new technology.  For more information on the AIT machines visit a TSA press release on the topic or a web page on AIT at the TSA portal.  Learn more about air travel security.
