Over on the TSA News Blog a guy using Bob as his handle is saying that as of right now the ASE backscatter machines have not been authorized for use. As I understand the situation based on Bob's remarks ASE has a contract to supply some test units and up to the $245 million dollars contract limit if they can get the ATR (automatic target recognition) software to work with a backscatter strip search machine. If ASE machines are placed in airports they look very much like the Rapescan machine. One or two telephone booth size boxes. Not the clear plexiglass units that are the identity marker for MMW.
