IGIA to have full-body scanners

The examining procedure for the latest German-made fully body scanners presently being carried out at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport has yielded better results than previous tests, reveal the officials from the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF).

The whole procedure is likely to go on until April 2020 after which the Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL) will begin the full installation of the technology. 

The 69 full-body scanners to be installed at IGI, reportedly, have millimetre wave technology that emits high-frequency radio waves. The scanner can capture high-resolution 3D images of passengers allowing it to detect plastic weapons or explosives.

However, these scanners have found themselves at the heart of the controversy in recent years with some privacy activist organisations stating that they effectively capture “naked” images of the human body.

In being able to see through clothing, and map the contours of an individual’s body, it is said to violate basic human rights, and should not be made mandatory, according to privacy advocates.
