Pulse-based UWB micro-power radar systems provider, Camero-Tech, has supplied its Xaver 400 and Xaver 100 solutions to the search and rescue expedition sent by the IDF Home Front Command SAR Unit to the disaster area in Turkey.

Over 44,000 people have been killed and thousands have been injured following earthquakes in the region.

Camero’s systems – which are capable of detecting the breathing of living people buried under layers of debris/rubble, even without movement – are part of the company’s overall search and rescue kit, which is fully equipped with Camero-Tech’s STTW radar imaging systems, enabling search and rescue teams to detect live objects in disaster scenarios such as earthquakes, tsunamis and fires.

“As our hearts go out to all those who have been affected by this tragic event, we are proud that we have been able to assist the rescue efforts, using Camero systems to successfully save lives,” said Amir Beeri, CEO and Founder, Camero-Tech.

“The technology we have developed over the years, which is usually used in military and law enforcement missions, continues to prove its effectiveness in its original purpose of saving lives.

“This is not the first time we have witnessed the success of our unique technology in disaster areas; it was also used to locate and rescue survivors following the 2017 earthquake in Mexico.”

On arrival at the scene of a disaster, Camero’s compact search and rescue kit is ready to be deployed in less than a minute, enabling teams in the field to move agilely even in harsh environments and to locate life under debris and collapsed buildings.
