To see through the wall

This post is also available in: עברית (Hebrew)


This Israeli technology is constantly improved and used by anti terror units around the world.


The Xaver 100 developed by Camero is an ultra-portable, handheld and durable presence of life detector. The Xaver 100 provides military, law enforcement and Search & Rescue personnel critical information in real-time about the presence of life and its distance behind a wall, enabling better tactical decision making in various operational scenarios such as:

Tactical Entry/Assault – Alert operators to the presence of potential threats

1Hostage Recovery – Quickly determine which spaces are occupied

Search & Rescue – Effective detection of trapped or injured people

Breaching – Plan for effective and safe entries

Force Protection – Create a”Virtual Window” to spot external approaching threats. Providing a clear operational advantage and the ability to”step into the known”.

The Xaver 100 has been deployed by users worldwide. The Israeli company would not identify them.

The Xaver 100 utilizes a state-of-the-art system architecture, encompassing multiple cutting edge technologies. A unique and micro-power Ultra-Wideband (UWB) pulsed radar sensor that operates at very high bandwidth for industry leading performance. Mathematical algorithms are used to cope with cluttered environments resulting in a highly reliable object presence and distance detection. A simple user interface and ultra-portable form factor are key features of the design. The Xaver™ 100 has an optional internal wireless module for full remote control and viewing options.

Radiation Safety

The Xaver 100 is completely radiation safe. It is designed to provide superior performance while meeting the requirements of ICNIRP-1998 radiation exposure restriction; and an available version for the FCC OET Bulletin 65 – Limits for General Population/ Uncontrolled Exposure.
