L-3 (LLL) shares are popping as the Amsterdam airport declares a switch to full-body scanners. One has to imagine that privacy concerns will eventually take a back seat to the simple logic behind properly scanning air travellers. Keep in mind that it just takes a few major international airports to make the switch, in order to start a new global standard. For example, imagine Beijing goes to full-body scans… such an action would substantially increase the pressure for the U.S. to get up to speed with its security technology.
