I See London…I See France. I See Through Your Underpants!

millimeter wave scanner I See London...I See France. I See Through Your Underpants!
While reading today’s newspaper, I came across an article about millimeter wave passenger imaging technology – a total body scanner that allows security personnel to view travelers as if they were naked. In a matter of seconds, this technology can detect weapons, explosives and other threatening items concealed under layers of clothing – without physical contact.

According to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), this is how the Millimeter Wave Scanner works:

 I See London...I See France. I See Through Your Underpants!* Beams of radio frequency (RF) energy in the millimeter wave spectrum are projected over the body’s surface at high speed from two antennas simultaneously as they rotate around the body.

* The RF energy reflected back from the body or other objects on the body is used to construct a three-dimensional image.

* The three-dimensional image of the body, with facial features blurred for privacy, is displayed on a remote monitor for analysis.

The threat of terrorism is frightening. But so is thought of some TSA official spying my secret lumps and bumps.

Millimeter wave technology is currently being utilized in various government locations across the United States, as well as international aviation and mass transit environments.

So I guess it’s time to stock up on some more Spanx.

    Not to mention that RF waves are dangerous and we are being inundated with them! Look at all the warnings about cell phones!

    Anonymous- cellphone waves have not been proven to be dangerous. All that has been said is that maybe young children should be kept away from them until we know more. But a lot of experts agree even that is overreacting.
