Portable body scanner for detecting concealed weapons

A cooperative R&D effort by NYPD and US DoD has produced a portable infrared body-scanner – like the ones the TSA is using, only mounted on a vehicle.  This would be a superb way of figuring out whether a bad guy is armed before getting into knife range to cuff him.  It’s currently facing range issues (it only works at up to a meter away from the person being scanned) but they’re hoping to increase the range to 25 meters eventually.
