A piece of new Israeli military technology called the Xaver 1000 now allows operators to “see through walls.” Seeing through walls nowadays involves complex artificial intelligence and imaging software. No doubt this system is something we’ve all seen in sci-fi films now turned into a reality.
The device in question, the Xaver 1000, is designed and produced by a top Israeli imaging company, Camero-Tech. It was unveiled during the Eurosatory 2022 show in Paris, France.
Camero-Tech isn’t a new name for those in the imaging solutions field, as they have been a leader in the industry for many years. Their “Through-Wall Imaging” has been at the core of their research and development, with their primary product being those from the Xaver line.
The newest product from the Xaver line, the XAVER-1000, is marketed as an essential system for the military to have. It can show operators what’s behind walls through artificial intelligence and tracking software that can track the movement of people or things beyond the wall through real-time tracking. Furthermore, it can also be used by law enforcement personnel, intelligence units, and search-and-rescue teams as they may find the real-time imaging of the system most beneficial to their operations.
According to the company, their new technology can detect the presence of life in rooms. It can also distinguish different people and identify the number of people within a room. It also can determine the distance of these people from the XAVER system. Perhaps amazingly, it can also determine whether these people are lying down, sitting, standing, or if the individual has been lying idle. The room’s general layout and specific body parts are also detectable, making it easier to determine their orientation and whether they are wielding weapons. It does all these functions in “high resolution,” which indicates the technology’s advancement.
For instance, search-and-rescue teams can utilize the technology if people are trapped behind collapsed portions of structures or possibly even rubble. For similar reasons, the police and SWAT teams can use the XAVER-1000 to assess systems if there are hostiles behind them, especially during hostage-taking situations.
“The XaverTM 1000 determines the most suitable approach to ensure successful life-saving missions in a variety of operational scenarios, such as hostage rescue situations,” Camero Tech CEO Amir Beeri stated.
“A high-resolution 3D view and other powerful tools of the system provide an exceptional level of situational awareness. Being able to achieve a high level of sensitivity, the Xaver™ 1000 is a true game-changer for special forces and law enforcement teams conducting urban and rural operations that require reliable information regarding hidden live objects.”
It’s important to note that the XAVER-1000 does not give you a video of what is happening beyond the wall. However, it detects activity! That might be a bit difficult to imagine, so here’s a video featuring the older Camero Xaver 800.

Easy to Use, With Little Training
One would expect that such a complex piece of technology would need a lot of training just to use, but it has been said that the XAVER is relatively easy to use. One operator can operate the Xaver 1000 with a simple push of a button.
It is like your standard gadget, with a simple interface on a 10.1-inch touchscreen display. The system is easy to navigate and features simple menu navigation. It can also record missions, so anything captured on its screen can be recorded if desired. This is useful if the unit wants to study their performance and other post-mission-related analysis and debriefing.
Camero Tech also offers other products similar to the Xaver-1000. One such device is the Camero Xaver 100 Tactical Handheld Radar Detector. It uses similar technology that can quickly detect whether a room is occupied or not. It can also detect life for up to 20 meters with its movement and distance from the device. This handheld device will be useful for teams clearing buildings and structures without putting them in immediate danger by directly punching through doors.
Another system they offer is the XaverNet system, a wireless ToughPad that works in cohesion with other Xaver products, such as the Xaver 100 and the Xaver 400. Essentially, it is a system that links 4 Xaver systems simultaneously so that the users can control these four systems from afar and obtain real-time visual data in no time.
With advancing technology, military and law enforcement personnel can be safer while conducting their missions. Straight out of movies, now a reality!
