Full Body scanners
Keeping in view the wide spread privacy concerns controversial full body scanners will be removed from US airports. The scanners which are a part of the security screening at airports in the past few years, will no more be seen from June onwards, a Federal Agency announced on Friday.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) said, the primary reason behind this is. The company which has installed scanners on airports has not been able to send non-imaging Automated Target Recognition (ATR) software as made mandatory by the congress.

TSA added "Due to its inability to deploy non-imaging ATR software by the Congressionally mandated June 2013 deadline, TSA has terminated its contract with Rapiscan, by June 1, 2013 travelers will only see machines which have ATR that allow for faster throughput. This means faster lanes for the traveler and enhanced security. As always, use of this technology is optional."
