It is exciting technology and we are just seeing the tip of the iceberg of what can be done with millimeter wave technology. It will be interesting to see what future trials will show. The waves do not stop on command, so they could reach other machines operating in the area, giving both false images. DARPA has been funding millimeter wave technology for at least 10 years. You may well see it show up in corporate security environments as well. The system could work thru the dry wall of a hallway, scanning people as they pass. It can also work out side looking for suicide bombers as they walk toward an establishment, or just walking down the street, if may not detect every little thing setup like that but it could catch a suicide vest or belt on a person walking down the street. The back scatter is somewhat like x-ray back scatter, so having a van with a scanner in it, could drive along a street and detect items on people walking down the street. A system that can drive by trucks, vans, and cars, looking for explosives already exists and is use in and around major cities. Technology is advancing, but we still need everyone to use their eyes and ears to help spot possible problems. In some cases this technology can help us move in on a person to determine if they are a threat with out ever letting them know we are checking them out. I can see this technology being used a sporting and entertainment events in the near future, perhaps a good stock buy for some of you investors. The Executive Protection field, should be keeping an eye on this technology for their use.
