TSA testing Iscon 1000D
Woburn, MA-based Iscon Video Imaging reports that TSA is testing its newly introduced airport passenger scanners.
The scanners employ a patented thermal-boosted infrared detection system that only shows objects and clothing without any harmful radiation, the company says.
“The Iscon system is a next generation imaging and detection system that creates a temperature differential between clothes and a hidden object,” Izrail Gorian, the company’s founder and president, said in a statement. “We’ve eliminated the two most prevalent concerns about airport scanner technology – radiation exposure and privacy issues. The U.S Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is currently testing our technology which we are ready to sell to airports and other security sensitive facilities.”
The system is being introduced in two configurations -- a whole body scanner portal and a hand-held device.
