    Press release from here. This is unlikely to be any better than the existing technology which recently flubbed in Hamburg, but at least there is no radiation emitted. I could actually be supportive of this if it were effective (big if).

    About ThruVision Systems
    ThruVision Systems Ltd is a manufacturer of security screening products that incorporate proprietary passive terahertz imaging technology to detect person borne concealed objects. ThruVision Systems is based near Oxford, UK. Its security screening products are deployed in various locations in Europe, North America and the Middle East and Asia Pacific regions.

    Technology background
    All ThruVision Systems’ products are passive. Images of concealed objects on people are formed by receiving low energy waves known as terahertz waves. Terahertz waves occupy part of the electromagnetic spectrum between radio waves and infra-red (heat). Terahertz waves are naturally produced all of the time by all objects and people. ThruVision Systems’ products receive energy; they do not transmit or radiate energy. ThruVision Systems’ products do not illuminate people with any radiation such as X-rays or millimetre wave microwaves. The products provide imaging solutions for real time use on people either close by or at distance, indoors and out.
