The Delhi International Airport has started testing the full-body scanner at Terminal 2 in accordance with the directive of Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS).
Objects can be detected using a full-body scanner, which doesn’t touch people or intrude their privacy in any way.
Full-body scanners, in contrast to traditional door frame metal detectors [DMFD], may identify non-metal things that are difficult to detect.
It was determined that the Millimeter-Wave scanner used at Delhi Airport was accurate and had medical approvals addressing health dangers. It also addressed privacy concerns to the fullest extent possible.
Scanners at airports can reveal anything hidden underneath travellers’ garments, reducing the amount of random pat-downs and strip searches. This keeps staff out of awkward situations and speeds up security checks.
For testing purposes, the airport has deployed a full-body scanner at the security checkpoint. The trials would take place in real time, so travellers would have to go through it at their security check before proceeding to the security hold area.
