TSA Testing More Modest Full Body Scans

There has been a lot of controversy over full body scanners in airports in the last several months. My last trip flying out of Las Vegas, I was randomly selected for a full body scan. It wasn’t horrible by any means, but I would say inconvenient. Either side your on, for or against, the full body imaging that is being conducted in airports across the country will take a few extra minutes of your precious time. This week, a less intrusive scanning software is being tested according to The Coloradoan:

The new technology, introduced at Las Vegas McCarran International Airport for a 45- to 60-day trial, is designed to

detect potential explosives and show them on a blurred “generic outline” of a person projected a monitor that can be seen by screeners and travelers. The outline will be identical for all passengers.

The TSA will introduce the software at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International and Ronald Reagan Washington National in the next few days.
