Through-Wall Vision: The Israeli company Camero has developed a piece of equipment that will greatly help soldiers and law enforcement officials throughout the world. The device enables you to know where people are located in a room in real time before having to enter it. The Xavier 400 is about the size of a laptop computer weighing under 3kg including the battery. It also has an optimized design for tactical operations which makes it easy to carry around by combat soldiers in the field.
The identification system is based on a unique, multichannel, Ultra-Wideband (UWB) sensor that operates at very high bandwidth that enables reliable detection and object resolution. The Xavier 400 system is able to locate images through walls using electromagnetic pulses and is able to provide quick location and number of people hidden by walls and barriers.
“This technology saves lives,” explained David Gazelle, Vice President of R&D.
The system is already an operational success and is being deployed worldwide. Six months ago a girl was kidnapped in a foreign country by kidnappers who demanded ransom for her release in the amount of two million shekels. The SWAT equivalent local unit utilized Xaver 400 to see where the abductors were located. The picture on the device revealed four kidnappers and the girl who was kept hostage. While three kidnappers were in another room of the house, one of them was keeping guard on the girl in the same room. When he left the room to go to the bathroom the police broke in and saved the girl.
