The world’s first fully portable hand-held microwave imaging technology scanner

Project description

Handheld microwave imaging technology scanner to make airports safer

Current security measures in airports include the use of X-ray scanners and metal detectors. Albeit safe and simple, this technology can't detect non-metal threats such as plastic explosives. The EU-funded Walleye project will tackle this shortcoming by developing the world’s first fully portable scanner with microwave imaging technology intended for the burgeoning security screening and security detection system markets. The lightweight, battery-powered scanner features a revolutionary handheld camera that can see through luggage, walls, clothing, packaging, suitcases, shoes and opaque containers to provide video images of what’s inside. Thanks to its inexpensive design and capacity to detect a broader range of security threats, Walleye's technology has the potential to increase safety at airports.
