I'm all for airport safety--however, I'm cringing at the announcement of new technology capable of looking through clothing to find weapons.
Passive Millimeter-wave (PMMW) technology does just that, however. See Emerging technology sees through clothing. Actually, this is timely. Security, is the focus of this week's newsletter. Security articles featured throughout 2006 on Network Systems DesignLine will be available at the click of a mouse this Thursday (and most likely next Thursday too, given the volume of articles).
So I'm sure this first go-round with PMMW wouldn't be too bad--but the impetus for imaging improvements just may get a nudge based on the potential rewards of PMMW. Hey, I'm just talking about better security.
Anyway, watch for this week's newsletter. Don't get it? Well subscribe--just go to the navigation bar above that says 'newsletter.' And if you do subscribe, please pass it on to your colleagues. Thanks.
