Adelaide Airport to trial new body scanner

19 April, 2017

Adelaide Airport launched (19-Apr-2017) a one month trial of Rohde & Schwarz Quick Personnel Security Scanner on 19-Apr-2017. The technology completes a full body scan in a matter of seconds: "The open plan design means passengers simply stand in front of the scanner with their arms held slightly away from the body" stated airport MD Mark Young, creating "a more pleasant experience" for passengers with medical implants. Mr Young added: "Objects are recognised by an evaluation of the reflected (backscattered) microwave signal" and projected on "a generic graphic of the human body…preserving the privacy of passengers".
