Israeli scientists have developed revolutionary new radar technology that will allow people to see through walls, Haaretz newspaper reported on
The radar system, developed by the Herzliya-based Camero company, can produce a three-dimensial image of what lies behind a wall by the use of
ultra-wideband technology, the paper said.
The quality of the pictures is similar to that produced by ultrasound and they can be taken from a distance of up to 20 metres. The company's chief
executive Aharon Aharon said an initial prototype of the device was expected to be ready in 18 months and could help rescue workers find victims of
"When disaster victims must be rescued from a collapsed building or a fire, time is of the essence," Aharon told the paper. "Rescue forces often
invest enormous resources and precious time in combing the rubble, or endanger their lives by entering the flames, even if it is not clear that there
are any survivors behind the walls."
Its military applications are obvious.
Just hope they wont proliferate it
