TSA to Remove Body Scanners From Busy NY Airports
Tuesday, October 23, 2012 - 10:47 AM
The Transportation Security Administration says it is removing full body scanners from New York's airports and moving them to less busy airports.
LaGuardia and Kennedy are among a number of major airports where the backscatter technology machines are being removed.
They will be replaced by machines that use millimeter wave technology to produce a more generic outline of a person's body, instead of the more specific images produced by the backscatter machines.
The agency says the decision was made to speed up security checkpoints.
