Its streamlined exterior design conserves space while maintaining the same interior area as earlier models. The system offers the same proven, image-free checkpoint detection and throughput as the ProVision ATD – the only TSA- and EU-approved aviation passenger screening solution with automated target recognition software. It quickly screens personnel using safe millimeter wave (MMW) technology to automatically detect concealed objects made of a wide range of materials – both metallic and non-metallic.
