Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) October 25, 2012
On October 25 2012, Surf Patch released a statement dealing with the transfer of body scanners with backscatter technology to increase operational efficiency and hopefully further clear airport security.
According to an article from ABC News, the Transportation Security Administration has been “strategically reallocating” body scanners from major airports like Los Angeles International and New York JFK to distribute this advanced backscatter technology to smaller airports while bringing in newer body scanners to replace them.
The article from ABC News continues to state, “The millimeter wave units that are arriving in the larger airports use a different type of technology. The machines do produce different types of images, but the customer experience is the same. Millimeter wave produces a generic outline of the passenger being scanned, while backscatter is more specific.”
The travel and clothing company Surf Patch commented on the re-distribution and replacement to improve operational efficiency. World traveler Takara Licausi states, “Although it is good to hear that the TSA are taking steps to become more efficient, it is unclear whether or not these new scanners will clear airport security and make travel easier.”
