Rohde & Schwarz offers a new security scanner for security checks. It automatically detects whether the person being scanned is carrying potentially dangerous items on their body or clothing. The millimeterwave technology used in the security scanner is based on the company’s long-standing experience in RF engineering.

Drones flying over prohibited areas are an increasing security risk. The flying objects can interfere with safe handling of air traffic.
