Well not directly, but L-3 is EOTech's parent company.

The two firms that make full-body scanners for airports say they've come up with a solution to protect passenger privacy.
Bloomberg News reports that the naked images of passengers would be replaced with a cartoon-like avatar of a featureless man.
Parts of the man's body would light up if the scanner spotted something suspicious.
The upgrades from New York-based L-3 Communications Holdings and California-based OSI Systems must still get the final approval from the Transportation Security Administration.
The TSA is making a big push to install more full-body scanners in airports across the U.S.
Roughly a thousand scanners are due at airports by the end of next year.
The scans will still be option but passengers may face pat-downs if they refuse.

They make a lot of avionics equipment also.

cartoon or not, they'll still be storing images, there will be a "closer look" or "override" or "zoom" button that the 5.75 an hour TSA goon can use to get the full view when there is a hot chick like the wife in the scanner, which they will then take pictures of and show to all their friends.


they'll tell you there isn't, but there will be. Just like when they said the images didn't store or they couldn't be printed. Then they were found out to both be storing them and have the ability to print them.


I won't send my wife in one of those things. Ever.

Depending on spread, one could take down a large group of pheasants with that thing... that is if they don't fly away while you're still a mile away because of the noise made by your Stryker vehicle...

I have been through these $10MM machines, why are we still subjected to a 100% pat down if they are capable of such revealing resolution?

Check out Boston Logan, where by the way if the TSA was doing their job 9 years ago we wouldn't ...well I'll leave it at that!

They make the camera system in my patrol car as well.

Oddly enough, I'm one of the few people I can think of that has been talking to a police officer on campus with more than one firearm in plain sight in my vehicle (as a student) and had no repercussions from it. It helps that I was involved heavily last year with a DNR-approved deer hunt inside of city limits, so we had what were essentially get out of jail free cards because university property was included in the DNR writeup (and campus police were given the heads up first). Out of the 40 or so people involved, only myself and one other weren't judges, firemen, or LEO.

There was no TSA nine years ago
