Millivision Technologies Encouraged by European Union's Call for Full Body Scanner Safeguards

Leader in Millimeter Wave Scanner Technology Available to Comment on Commission's Statement on Safety and Privacy Standards

SOUTH DEERFIELD, MA--(Marketwire - June 24, 2010) -  Millivision, the leader in millimeter wave scanner technology, expresses its support for European Union's call for common safeguards for fully body scanners. Millivision's scanning technology addresses the concerns raised by the EU, offering a technology that ensures the safety and privacy of an individual while still delivering more advanced detection capabilities.

In a statement issued last week, the commission said that full body scanners deployed in the continent's airports must conform to European human rights laws.

Millivision's Passive Millimeter Wave Imager provides safe, privacy-protecting, reliable and economical threat detection that is easy to implement and operate. The Millivision Passive Millimeter Wave Imager employs highly specialized non-invasive sensors to detect threats or contraband concealed beneath clothing on the human body. These scanners can detect an amazing array of objects, including but not limited to, knives, guns, explosives and contraband. The system can detect objects made from ceramic, plastic, liquid, gel, metal or other non-metallic materials and composites.

Millivision's president, Paul Nicholas, is available for comment on this EU development or any other issue regarding next generation full body scan technologies.
