Through the wall Vision

Camero offers two 'Through the wall vision' products -The Xaver 800 and tactical Xaver 400 hand-held sensors, both providing through the wal vision employing radar technology.

'Through-Wall Vision' is employed to change the dynamics of your urban operation. With the Xaver 800 users can rapidly and reliably observe one or more people in a room and continuously monitor their activities while positioned outside the room's walls.

The system was developed in close co-operation with leading individuals and agencies from the Military, Law Enforcement and Fire & Rescue communities. Whether protecting the lives of operatives entering unknown or potentially hostile situations, or playing a vital role in rescue operations, Xaver puts you in control of the situation and allows you to 'Step into the known'.

Tactical teams conducting urban operations are constantly faced with stepping into the unknown - is anyone in the room, hidden behind the wall or lurking in the hallway? Mission plans must account for any contingency, adding complexity and increasing the chance of error often in life and death situations. Camero's Xaver suite of through-wall vision systems provides unprecedented situational awareness. The Xaver 400 allows quick location of people hidden by walls and barriers, enabling tactical teams to step into the known.

The Xaver 400 is a compact, lightweight and durable personal device, optimized for the speed of tactical entries. The Xaver 400 gives special ops and rescue forces critical information in realtime about the number of people and their location behind a wall. Simple to operate, it provides mission-critical information when and where it is needed.

The system utilizes technology similar to that utilized for the Xaver 800, implementing a smaller sensor. The result is a compact form factor, optimized for the use of tactical teams with a performance level that suits the requirements of tactical operations.
