Security Scanner

How does the security scanner work?

The scanner uses harmless millimetre-waves (common radio-frequency signals) which reflect off objects at extremely low power levels. These signals pass through clothing but do not penetrate the body. The system then creates a 3-D silhouette (a stick like figure) of a passenger’s body, rather than an actual image so it is impossible to identify anybody. The scan takes less than 10 seconds.

 

Privacy protection

The system creates a 3-D silhouette (a stick like figure) of the passenger’s body, rather than an actual image so it is impossible to identify anybody. It will identify any items on the figure that require further investigation. Our vetted and trained security staff may view the images. Passengers may also see their image. The images are deleted immediately after analysis and cannot be recovered.

A passenger can request that their image is viewed by a security officer of the same gender. The Airport must meet this request as quickly as possible.
