The US Transportation Security Administration began rolling out new airport scanner software Tuesday that produces less revealing images of travelers.
The new software “enhances privacy by eliminating passenger-specific images and instead auto-detects potential threat items and indicates their location on a generic outline of a person,” the TSA said.
McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas was the first to test the new software, with Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson hub and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport in the US capital due to have the new program installed in the coming days.
Advanced imaging technology X-ray scanners currently in use at airports around the United States sparked an uproar among travelers because they produce a graphic image of a person’s naked body, genitalia and all.
