This machine will detect weapons and explosives on airline passengers. It's a so-called "backscatter" that will be used at checkpoints in the airport, Tribune reported.

Airport officials said this screening will be voluntary for those for have to go through additional screening or they will have to be patted down, reported the Tribune.
