) recently launched the AllClear handheld screener equipped with
improved and highly advanced security features. Its integrated
metal detector can identify the presence of metallic objects,
ceramics, plastics, liquids, gels, powders, paper and other
things hidden on an individual's body.
AllClear is the first handheld image-free screener that uses
passive millimeter wave detection technology for its activities.
This battery-driven device helps in detecting minor changes in
naturally emitted millimeter waves due to the presence of hidden
objects on the body.
There is no image generation or radiation, which enables the
detection of hidden objects without revealing anatomical details.
Since detection is immediate, it is possible to use in important
or strategic areas, such as retail outlets, government buildings,
military installations and other locations for the protection of
people or property. It is easy to operate and requires minimal
level of training.
