The Israeli Military’s experimental tech has been a prominent topic as of late. With the government creating AI sniper rifles for remote assassinations, it makes sense that the Israeli Military would focus even more on AI weaponry.
Via Business Insider, the Army’s military defence research has led to wonder-tech that many thought impossible. In short, the group has allegedly created tech that can see through walls.
Israeli Military creates AI tech to see through walls
According to a report, the Israeli Army has created an AI tool that renders cover useless. Created by Camero-Tech, an Israeli imagining company, the technology was unveiled in Paris earlier this year.
Dubbed the Xaver 1000, the tool is designed as an AI tracking device for use in warfare. Using a combination of AI algorithms and unconfirmed tracking tech (potentially LiDAR/Sonar), the tool can allegedly track multiple targets behind walls.
The Xaver 1000 is said to be able to see through walls in real-time. Allegedly, the technology can map out an area behind a wall, detect life forms and provide the number of targets and their distance from the tool.
Furthermore, the 3D scans it provides are said to be so high-resolution that “it can detect whether a person is sitting, standing, or lying down, even if they have been motionless for a significant period.” Furthermore, specific body parts are able to be seen.
The report claims that the tool can see through most building materials, likely the most commonly used ones. Additionally, only minimal training is required to utilise the tool through an easy-to-learn touchscreen interface.

What will this be used for?
Camero-Tech claims that the technology will be used for a variety of activities, mainly military. In fact, the technology company claims that it will become an “essential tool” for the Israeli Military in the future.
Militaries, law enforcement, intelligences units and search and rescue teams are expected to use the tech. Whether or not they will is yet to be known.
