Camero – an Israeli developer of radar-based Through Wall systems – launched Xaver AID, Airborne Imaging Drone, an airborne structure-penetrating life detection system, at Milipol, in Paris, November 19-22.
According to the firm it’s delivering life-saving situation awareness via a UAV with through-roof detection-of-life capabilities. The company also presented for the first time at Milipol, the XaverNet system – its new wireless communication for remote monitoring and control of the Xaver products.
The Xaver AID (Airborne Imaging Drone) is described as a tactical unmanned VTOL (Vertical Take Off and Landing) drone able to provide remote real-time Non-Line-Of-Sight (NLOS) detection of life through the roof of a structure. The system uses Camero’s radar-based technology which has been the makers say field-proven in the Xaver family of through-wall imaging systems. Xaver AID’s additional optical payload provides a full situational awareness picture both the structure and of the surrounds. Xaver AID is designed for special forces, penetration forces, and intelligence and surveillance, allowing forces to ‘step into the known’.
Camero also presented the Xaver Net – wireless communication for its networked tactical through-wall imaging system – for the first time at Milipol. Xaver Net is a wireless command and control platform designed to support the deployment of the Xaver 400 and Xaver 100 systems. The solution includes a rugged PDA that can connect with the deployed Xaver product. The Xaver Net PDA supports viewing and control of multiple Xaver products with an intuitive interface.
The Xaver 100 is described as a portable, handheld presence-of-life detector providing military, law enforcement, and search and rescue personnel with critical information in real time about the presence of life and its distance behind a wall.
The Xaver 400 is a compact personal device for tactical entries. It delivers critical information regarding the number of people and their location behind walls made of common materials. It also provides information regarding room dimensions.
Amir Beeri, Camero’s CEO, said: “We are very pleased to announce the launch of new products and the expansion of our portfolio as well as the company’s operations – which enable our customers to benefit from a wider spectrum of solutions. We continuously invest significant resources in the creation of the best, most innovative, and highest quality systems that reliably safeguard human life.”
