I hate to say it, but this just means that there will be more uniformed TSA agents around, gloving up, and feeling up the passengers, of all ages and
races, of all internal and external flights.
I do not think that the scanners could be replaced with another technological solution, because no one will trust it. But I doubt people are going to
be any happier getting felt up on a more frequent basis at the terminal either.
There are 2 companies providing the Machines. The company being removed, used low X-Ray beams to scan the passengers. TSA needed to tweak the
machines, but the company could not comply. Their machine are being replaced by another company's machines. Nothing changes, business as usual.
Instead of X-rays they are using radio waves.
Shoot i dont understand why they dont use cameras like wal-mart all around the airport you can zoom into people personal effects like purses, dressing
rooms what have you. I dont understand why they just dont put cameras everywhere in the airport. facial recognition you could slip technology like
this in under Anyones nose at the airport.
some here seem to think they will be getting rid of scanners altogether, they are only getting rid of the ones that produce the detailed image, they
will still have ones that merely produce a more generic outline.
