Safe millimetre wave imaging systems ready for airport deployment

Brijot Imaging Systems : 31 December, 2009  (New Product)
Whole body imaging systems based on passive millimetre wave detection technology is available for use at airports for the detection of non-metallic materials hidden under clothing for the protection of airlines against bomb threats such as that which occurred on Christmas Day
Brijot Imaging Systems has announced that its whole body imaging systems are ready for deployment in airports and other government facilities. These systems are designed to clearly detect non-metallic items hidden under clothing, such as the powdered explosives used by the attempted airline bomber Christmas day. The Brijot solution is available now to fill the technology gap and unlike other systems, there are no safety concerns or privacy issues for the people being screened.


Brijot's passive millimeter wave imaging systems are the only globally deployed checkpoint system available in the industry that does not emit radiation or energy at people during the screening process. Instead, they only receive naturally occurring millimeter waves from the human body, and any items hidden on someone's body will show up in clear contrast in displayed images. The resolution of the images is deliberately low to keep from showing anatomical detail, in order to protect individuals' privacy.

"The events of this past weekend clearly demonstrate the need for improved people screening capabilities at airports and other mass transit locations," said Mitchel Laskey, Brijot president and chief executive officer. "Although the federal government and the TSA have done a commendable job in their efforts to protect the traveling public, current scanning technologies primarily only detect metal objects. Terrorists know this and have moved to plastic and other types of explosives. There is a clear need for another layer of screening technologies, one that effectively detects non-metal objects. The only checkpoint system globally available today that accurately finds objects hidden under clothing while preserving privacy and with no safety concerns is Brijot's passive millimeter system."

Brijot's passive millimeter wave systems are currently in use at a number of government and commercial locations in the US and overseas, including the Orlando Federal Courthouse, in Orlando, Florida, the UK Border Agency; in several major airports and ports, US Army locations in the Middle East, and multiple commercial deployments.

Brijot's core product has received the SAFETY Act Certification from the Department of Homeland Security for use in anti-terrorism security screening and the solution has been placed on the Approved Products List for Homeland Security, giving customers continued validation that the solution is effective, reliable and safe.
