LINTHICUM, Md. (AP) — Officials at Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport are showing off new security software intended to be less intrusive to passengers.


The machines were on display for reporters Friday at BWI, one of about a dozen U.S. airports using the software. The Transportation Security Administration is trying to alleviate privacy concerns from passengers who previously felt uncomfortable.

The technology does not display graphic depictions of passengers’ bodies as they pass through the machines. The new machines do not enable screeners to view individual body parts of a passenger, merely revealing a less precise depiction of the human body.
