Boston Logan (BOS) is slated to begin taking delivery of advanced-imaging technology (AIT) body-scanning machines upgraded with auto threat recognition (ATR) software in the next two months, enabling the display of “Gumby-like” images of passengers rather than today’s more detailed passenger-specific images. The process may then be “nearly as fast” as walk-through metal detectors, US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) federal security director-Mass. George Naccara told ATW.
The fuzzier images are a response to privacy concerns among some travelers. More important: Boston launched the pre-check program in mid-June.
