The ProVision 2 offers a smaller footprint and lower height for limited-space
checkpoint areas and is targeted for aviation screening applications. Its
streamlined exterior design conserves space while maintaining the same
interior area as earlier models. The system offers the same proven, image-free
checkpoint detection and throughput as the ProVision ATD – the only TSA- and
EU-approved aviation passenger screening solution with automated target
recognition software. It quickly screens personnel using safe millimeter wave
(MMW) technology to automatically detect concealed objects made of a wide
range of materials – both metallic and non-metallic.
