QinetiQ North America's offers SPO-7 standoff passive object detection system

McLean, VA-based QinetiQ North America characterizes its SPO-7 standoff passive object detection system as the kind called for by President Obama in the wake of the attempted Christmas Day airliner bombing.

QinetiQ says SPO-7 is an integral part of achieving a sustained, layered mix of systems that addresses threats before they reach screening checkpoints.

The sensor is a real-time, non-emitting, non-imaging system that detects concealed objects using passive millimeter wave technology, without raising the kind of privacy concerns that can be an issue for full-image scanners.

SPO-7 does not impede or slow the flow of pedestrian traffic and is capable of scanning a moving person in under three seconds, according to the company.

So far, TSA has purchased 22 units, QinetiQ adds.
