Xaver 1000, the IDF’s new “weapon” for seeing through walls (including reinforced concrete)

Thanks to artificial intelligence, Xaver 1000 recognizes objects and people behind walls and can also be used in the medical and rescue field

Israeli engineers have come up with a technology that can do that Revolutionizing the Military Worldand intelligence and security. Xaver 1000, this is the name of the new system that is based onArtificial intelligencehe is one A tool that can see through wallseven those in reinforced concrete with metal components, effectively identify objects and people outside the wall.

After a long trial period, camera techthe company that produced the superior camera, is confident that this completely innovative solution It can be used soonAfter being unveiled and first presented during Eurosatury 2022, an international exhibition dedicated to the theme of defense takes place every two years in Paris.

How it works is not fully disclosed. The manufacturer has only indicated that the complex process that combines tracking and algorithms allows you to see through walls while reloading Real-time information about things, people and anything else behind the wall towards which he is heading. Thus, its use gives the opportunity to perform a large number of different tasks, both of a military and defensive nature, but also of first aid, Accurately identify the people inside the buildingWhether they are standing, sitting or lying down and the distance between them, as well as understanding how the space is organized in general.

In this way, the presence of objects can be recognized and recognized thanks to the high-resolution images provided by Xaver 1000. To use them One worker is enough, although a training course will be required to learn how to use the touch screen and the specific interface. For the Israeli reality in particular, this technology could be Very useful in case of kidnapping Or in intelligence operations that require the identification of underground bunkers and the people who are there.


long term project

While there are those who argue that the Israeli military has been using this technology for some time, it certainly can be said Studies to develop it began a long time ago. In July 2004, the local newspaper, Haaretz, was already writing about the institution called camera (and then just founded), which was developing a very similar tool, which had the same purpose as it was recently revealed.

At its headquarters in Herzliya, north of Tel Aviv (today in Kfar Neter, the center of the country), the company has been developing Radio wave system that was able to reproduce 3D images starting from the movements behind the wall, It reaches twenty meters (this explains over the years the development of tools ranging from the Xaver 400, one of the first designed, to the current 1000, which reproduces 3D images with great ease). This support would mainly serve urban counter-terror operations or the search for survivors after a disaster. In recent years they joined Israel different NATO countriesThey are also intent on developing their own technologies to achieve the same mission, especially for military and intelligence activities.

alternative “pocket”

Technological progress in this field does not only include class military departments, because different realities, as was the case a few years ago Startup Vayyar (He also holds Israeli citizenship), he began developing technology capable of seeing through the walls he supports Smartphone-like gadgetSo with the ambition of being able to reach the goal more comfortably.

The company began developing a scanner to recognize objects and people through the wall, with the support of Walabout, a small tablet capable of tracking the conditions and signs of life inside buildings. An innovation that would make the process “pocket-sized”, so that it would be combined in order to function properly with the use of a regular smartphone. The introductory price was the equivalent of about seventy euros, but immediately made this function accessible to everyone Not a few moral problemsSo much so that later developers largely preferred to focus on applying Walabot in the medical and health fields.
