Millimeter Wave Imaging
Millimeter wave imaging is up and coming, especially in the field of security. Many airports are considering switching to millimeter wave imaging because it would allow them to “scan” up to 500 people an hour, looking for anything concealed that should not be allowed on a plane. Millimeter waves can actually detect these items through a person’s clothes, and while the person is in motion.
Because it has the ability to read through areas that are extremely difficult to see, millimeter wave imaging systems can be utilized in many ways:
- Help planes to land in fog
- To warn planes when there are other planes on that same flight path
- Detection of unseen medical issues, such as skin cancer
- Surveillance – seeing in the dark
