The TSA has announced that all body imaging machines, that show nude pictures of the people going through them, will be removed by June of this year.
That’s when the Congressionall rule goes into effect mandating all scanners be the non-imaging Automated Target Recognition software that only shows a generic outline of the body.
Rapiscan, the makers of the body imaging machines to be removed said they would not be able to convert theirs by this June. In response, the TSA has cancelled its contract with the company.
TSA believes that using the newer technology machines will speed up security lines.
