from aviation news: TSA Administrator Kip Hawley, during congressional testimony on May 13, announced plans to deploy hundreds of next generation, multi-view x-ray machines and whole body imagers. During the next two weeks, the agency will install more than 200 of the faster, clearer x-ray machines to airports, including Philadelphia, Washington Dulles and Reagan National, Los Angeles, Denver, Las Vegas and others. The new x-ray machines include multiple views of carry on baggage and a much clearer image, allowing officers to screen carry-on bags with fewer physical searches.
