Recently, I spoke with Francis Rose on Federal News Radio’s In Depth With Francis Rose, to discuss TSA’s new use of millimeter wave technology for the American rail system. Millimeter wave technology is a creative solution to keeping people safe with little to no distruption to travelers.
Listen to the interview here.
The old excuse “this is how we’ve always done it” doesn’t apply to one agency, says Wendell Shingler, former Executive Director of the National Incident Response Unit at Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and former Director of the Federal Protective Services. He believes the Transportation Security Administration’s passive screening equipment that uses millimeter wave technology is a sign the agency is trying to think in new ways. Mr. Shingler told me why he thinks so, and offered some background on TSA’s pilot program.
