100% Successful Weapon Detection Claims Digital Barriers ThruVis

Author: Brian Karas, Published on Nov 08, 2016

Digital Barriers is claiming their terahertz imaging unit provides functionality similar to an airport body scanner, at a fraction of the cost and in a unit the size of a desktop PC, making it portable, and affordable to a wider array of users.

The company claims the unit was "100% successful" in a test to detect people carrying weapons, however it is not without limitations.

We have specifics on this technology, and how it operates, from a conversation with Digital Barriers.
