KFAR NETTER, Israel, April 5 (UPI) -- A radar-based imaging system from Israel for detecting objects behind walls has been ordered by a South American country.

Camero, a pioneer in the development and marketing of radar-based through-wall systems, said it is supplying its Xaver 400 Tactical Through-Wall Imaging systems to the unidentified country for use by Special Forces.

Xaver is a portable, lightweight device "optimized for the speed of tactical entries."

Camero said it can detect objects and people behind walls and barriers within a range of 65 feet and can be operated at a standoff distance. The system also provides the operator with dimensions of a room and major infrastructure elements.

The system is operational in 25 countries.

"We are very pleased to have been awarded the tender in South America following a rigorous process during which the customer selected our system," said Camero Chief Executive Officer Amir Beeri. "The Xaver 400's features make it the ideal solution for use in tactical situations in the urban environments of South America."

Camero is displaying the system at the LAAD defense and security exhibition in Brazil next week.
