What is millimeter wave technology?

The term millimeter wave is meant to represent any wave along the electromagnetic spectrum that falls between 1 millimeter and 10 millimeters. This wavelength is slightly larger than those used for x-rays. Millimeter wave technology,or millimeter wave tech, puts this particular type of wave to use in a variety of ways.

Many airports are considering switching to millimeter wave technology 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 wave technology has also been utilized in the development of the Doppler radar, which has applications both in the military and in everyday weather detection and forecasting.
