Camero-Tech Launches its Groundbreaking Xaver Long Range Through-Wall Imaging system

Thursday, February 18th, 2021

For the first time, military forces, law enforcement agencies and first responders are able to detect live objects beyond the wall from a long range of over 100 meters.

18th February 2021. Camero-Tech – an SK Group member, a world leader and pioneer in developing, producing and marketing of pulsed-based UWB micro-power radar ‘Through Wall Imaging’ systems – is launching its groundbreaking XaverTM LR80 (XLR80) system, which enables detection of live objects behind walls, at distances of over 100 meters. This new capability provides a breakthrough operational advantage in a hostile environment.

Special forces and law enforcement teams conducting urban and rural operations require reliable information regarding hidden live objects to determine the most suitable approach to ensure successful missions and life-saving. Penetrating through walls from a remote location, the XLR80 creates an unprecedented, real-time situational awareness picture of whether there are people present beyond the wall, and if so, how many, their exact distance and their direction of movement. The system is also highly sensitive for detecting unseen micro movements of static live objects. Being able to achieve these capabilities and the high sensitivity, is a game changer in various operational scenarios.

Controlled by a tablet with a simple user interface for intuitive interpretation, the XLR80 features integrated data recording and playback for post-mission analysis, training and debriefing. A dedicate sight is used for accurately directing the narrow beam of the system to the target. The system can be operated by a single user and it is ready for use by a push of a button.

“For the first time, the operator in the field has the ability to see through walls at such long distance,” says Amir Beeri?, CEO of Camero. “We have developed unique technology on which the XLR80 system is based on. An innovative Ultra-Wideband (UWB) sensor supported by patented algorithms and signal processing, provides the user with real time situational awareness while staying safe at more than 100 meters away from the target.”

The new XLR80 system is the latest addition to Camero’s XaverTM family of products, which includes the XaverTM 100, 400 and 800 and has been successfully deployed by elite customers around the world in military, law enforcement, intelligence and search & rescue applications. The XaverTM family delivers significant capabilities in information gathering, anti-terror activities, hostage rescue, anti-narcotics operations, and many other urban operations and missions.

The XLR80 is completely radiation safe by meeting international standards for human exposure.

Meopta Introduces MeoPro Optika LR Rangefinding Binoculars

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2021

TAMPA, FL, February 2, 2021 – Meopta is pleased to introduce the MeoPro Optika LR series.   Available in 10×42 HD and 8×50 HD models, these high-performance laser rangefinding binoculars quickly measure distance up to 2,600 yards and 2,950 yards, respectively.

The Optika LR’s premium European optics with HD fluoride glass and Meopta’s advanced MeoLux lens coating deliver exceptionally bright images in low light with maximum resolution and contrast.  Color fidelity is true throughout the entire field of view and the MeoDrop hydrophobic coating ensures a clear view, even in the most extreme weather conditions.

The fast and accurate integrated laser rangefinder features three modes: Auto – which provides continuous ranging of moving targets. Near Ranging – which ranges the closest object in the aiming circle, and Far Ranging – which ranges the farthest object in the aiming circle to ensure an accurate reading in situations where there may be objects in the foreground, such as tree limbs or tall grass, that could interfere with a less precisely calibrated rangefinder. The two distance modes offer an advantage to those who frequently hunt in varied terrains.  Incline data is also measured for accurate angle compensation in the field.

The illuminated OLED display can be set to yards or meters and features four levels of brightness control.   Display readings automatically shut off after 10 seconds to extend battery life. The Optika LR also features twist-up eyecups, dual diopter adjustments, and a low battery indicator. 

The magnesium alloy body and rubber armoring make the Optika LR rugged enough for use in the most brutal terrain.  It is fully waterproof, shockproof, and its optical and mechanical performance is backed by Meopta’s Lifetime Transferrable Warranty. 

Retail Pricing

Optika LR 10×42 HD              $1,499.99
