Qinetiq Millimeter Wave

We got an update on the state of the millimeter wave imaging technology being developed by "personal security" company Qinetiq a couple of months ago, and the latest word is that their small scanner for inspecting individuals and small groups will be ready to roll officially in August. Also, as a result of the recent London bombings, the UK government and police force are looking into adopting the scanners for detecting concealed bombs and weapons. A single scanning portal can handle snapping moving images that can "see" through a person's clothes at a rate of 500 people per hour. Home Secretary Charles Clarke said the UK government would begin testing the devices immediately upon their availability in August.
