Airport scanners: New software in US after outrage over full-body screening
America was outraged when full-body scanners, which showed revealing pictures of air passengers, were introduced.
Now, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has bowed to pressure to introduce new software that will show just the outline of the person travelling.
New software: A monitor shows a passenger’s outline on the new ‘modesty scanners’ which are set to replace revealing full-body scanners
In another change the new software will only alert staff when a questionable object is detected and those being scanned will be able to see their image on a screen as they exit the machine.
