Not exactly sure what happened to Brijot but I had three colleagues that went to work for them about 6 years ago when they were on the upswing. They all found new positions with other companies in early 2011 just after the Microsemi buyout.

Anybody else has some thoughts / feedback on Brijot or passive microwave technology ?

I do not see any issues with technology or products. They work well, though proper installation and use is extremely important. Like with any screening technology, you have to know what you are doing. There are 6 "Concepts of Operation" that can be adopted for wide range of customer requirements, though passive microwave technology is definitely not a silver bullet and has its own limitations. As I have personal experience with their equipment, I may say that there is indeed no way to put someone fresh from the street as an operator of such system. Though this is absolutely possible with proper training and practice. You can find rejuvenated Brijot technology under Microsemi Screenibg Solutions. The biggest issue with Brijot, at my opinion, was weak or nonexistent sales organization. There were not utilizing channel or partners well. Microsemi has strong channel partner program that was recently updated with Microsemi Screenibg Solutions.
PS: This video shows old Brijot system. Current solutions have changed significantly with addition of handheld passive microwave scanner that nobody else has.PS2: Microsemi is not targeting airport security market as it is limited; Loss Prevention is one of their hot areas.
Well from the video it seems to take an awful lot of twisting and dancing for a scan and also from the demo images it seems like it would be very easy to miss something. Finally - what about someone in a wheelchair?
Seems like the product is not mature at all.
