Gov’t Updates Body Scanners
TRAVELERS’ PRIVACY—CANADAApril 17, 2013
Minister of State (Transport) Steven Fletcher has announced that the Canadian government is deploying software on Canada’s full body scanners to enhance passenger privacy, The Herald reports. The new Automatic Target Recognition software is now being updated to produce a computer generated stick figure rather than displaying an outline of the passenger’s body, the report states. “Our government is committed to ensuring the safety and security of all passengers traveling through Canadian airports,” Fletcher said.
