A FULL body scanner is set to go on trial at Sydney airport. The device, which will be trialled in early August, will produce a generic outline of a passenger and detect non-metal items under clothing. Federal Transport Minister Anthony Albanese assured passengers the device is safe. "The scanners are perfectly safe and one body scan emits 10,000 times less radio frequency energy than an average mobile phone call," he said today. The program is voluntary and any passengers not wanting to try the scanner will go through the standard screening procedures.
