LAWA chooses Thruvision people-screening technology

0

Oxfordshire-based Thruvision has been selected by Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) to provide a critical layer of security for employee screening.

Thruvision’s proven passive terahertz technology reveals items hidden under outerwear and clothing. The technology can detect any concealed item – metallic or non-metallic. It can screen up to 2,000 individuals per hour, is mobile and can be deployed on an as-needed basis, and cannot see anatomical details.

“LAWA is addressing the safety and security needs of its airports without impeding the speed of commerce,” said Kevin Gramer, vice president of Thruvision, Americas. “Emerging and evolving threats in airport environments are well-documented and Thruvision is proud to play a part in securing US airports.”

The technology measures the thermal energy emitted by the human body, showing objects that block that energy as dark spots on the body’s thermal outline, an image often termed the ‘green ghost’. Unlike other high-power stand-off body scanners, Thruvision is completely safe, and as a passive technology, it does not require certification to prove it does not cause radio interference with other safety-critical systems.
