Screener at Sky Harbor Airport Can Now Undress You

You’ll be stripped naked and evaluated for any metal objects. That is how the new screening device at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport works.

Like the backscatter, the millimeter wave machine figuratively undresses the person being scanned, producing a computer image monitored by a TSA screener in a closed cubicle to give screened passengers an extra measure of privacy. A TSA agent, who cannot see any images, communicates by headphones with the screener, who can see the images but not the person being screened.
