Following an article by stating that Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport would be putting in two new state of the art security scanners to make the airport security process more efficient.

On October 17 2012, travel and clothing company Surf Patch releases a statement after observing an article by that a Phoenix airport would be improving their airport security with two brand new scanners to help people clear airport security more easily.

According to the news article by, two new scanners were put into place using new Backscatter Advanced Imaging Technology which is low energy and reduces the risk of radiation. The article further states that the scanners can still detect unusual metal objects without using high-energy radiation. The TSA agents will now try to react to metal detection by inspecting the area of the body that indicated the detection rather than giving a full pat-down inspection that is invasive to privacy of travelers.

Travel and clothing company Surf Patch approves of these changes and how it may improve the ability for travelers to get through security quicker and without invasion of privacy. World traveler Takara Licausi comments, saying, “People already have a great deal to worry about with airport security. The lines can get very long even without the pat-down checks and security scanning. But now, improved scanners that chop down the need for pat-down searches make a more hassle-free experience for travelers.”

These methods are among the few that have been put into place to improve airport security conditions among the TSA and airlines. “The TSA has been making a lot of changes lately. It used to be the belief that comfort had to be sacrificed for traveler safety, but this isn’t necessarily the case anymore. People can get through security and get onto their flights quicker.”
