Israel's Camero-Tech, a producer of through wall imaging systems, is launching its Xaver LR80 (XLR80) system that enables detection of live objects behind walls at distances of over 100 meters. The company, a member of SK Group, designs and produces systems utilizing pulse-based, ultra-wideband micro-power radar technology.
In a statement, the company noted that Special Forces and law enforcement teams conducting urban and rural operations require reliable information on people within buildings to determine the most suitable approach for ensuring successful operations. Penetrating walls from a distance, the XLR80 provides unprecedented, real-time awareness of whether people are present, and if so, how many, their exact distance and their direction of movement. In addition, the high sensitivity of the system enables it to detect unseen movements such as breathing. These capabilities make the XLR80 a game changer in various operational scenarios, according to Camero.
Controlled by a tablet with a simple user interface for intuitive interpretation, the XLR80 features integrated data recording and playback for post-mission analysis, training and debriefing. A dedicated sight is used for accurately directing the system's narrow beam to the target. The system can be operated by a single user, and only requires the push of a button to be ready for use. According to the company, the XLR80 is completely safe in terms of radiation, meeting international standards for human exposure.
“For the first time, the operator in the field has the ability to see through walls at such long distance,” says Amir Beeri, CEO of Camero. “We have developed unique technology on which the XLR80 system is based on. An innovative Ultra-Wideband (UWB) sensor supported by patented algorithms and signal processing provides the user with real time situational awareness while staying safe at more than 100 meters away from the target."
The XLR80 is the latest addition to Camero's Xaver family of products, including the Xaver 100, 400 and 800, which have been successfully deployed by elite customers around the world in military, law enforcement, intelligence and search & rescue applications. The Xaver family provides significant capabilities for information gathering, anti-terror activities, hostage rescue, anti-narcotics operations, and many other urban operations and missions, according to the company.
