Camero unveiled its latest through-the-wall system, the Xaver 1000, at the Eurosatory 2022 defence exhibition in Paris.

The Xaver 1000, intended for tactical and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) missions, has an HD 3D ‘sense-through-the-wall' capability, IIan Abramovich, vice president of business development, sales, and marketing at Camero, told Janes on 15 June.

This gives the user much-improved situational awareness compared to previous systems, enabling the operator to detect static and moving individuals, as well as specific body parts, animals, and objects, he said.

The Xaver family of systems are radar-based and use ultra-wide-band radio signals between 3–10 GHz. All systems (including the latest Xaver 1000) can see through drywall, concrete, and various structures, though not solid metal.

Metal drywall studs or concrete reinforced with rebar can block the signal as well, but the system can still function if a non-metal through-spot can be found, Ilan Abramovich, Camero senior vice-president of sales and marketing for defence, said in a separate announcement.

The Xaver 1000, typically placed against a wall, can be operated by a single user via a 10.1-inch touchscreen display. The new display also allows the operator to navigate and integrate data recording and playback for post-mission analysis, training, and debriefing, Abramovich said.

Weighing 16.5 kg it can be operated at a range of 40 m, double the range compared to previous versions, Abramovich said. He added that the Xaver 1000 also has a field of view of 120-degrees.

Camero's Xaver family of solutions includes the short-range Xaver 100 and Xaver 400, and the long-range Xaver 400 and Xaver LR80 – launched in February 2021.
