The Ninoy Aquino International Airport (Naia) authorities on Tuesday demonstrated how the newly-installed full-body scanner Eqo Portal System works. The scanner uses advanced technology to detect objects on a passenger’s body by means of low-frequency radiation.
The scanner is safe even for pregnant women and those with body implants, according to the airport’s Media Affairs Division. Eqo Portal can also detect ceramics, liquid, metal, narcotics and explosives.
This device is ideal for passengers who refuse to be touched because of religious or other beliefs.
The system’s radiation is only skin deep and does not penetrate clothing to show the silhouette of a passenger.
