Czech firm presents new model of wall radar

It doesn’t give its users superhuman vision like Superman, but it comes pretty close. Czech radar company Retia says the latest model of its Retwis wall radar is so powerful, it can detect the slightest human movement, such a breathing behind solid barriers.

Head of marketing, Radim Sikl.

(SOUNDBITE) (Czech) HEAD OF RETIA SALES AND MARKETING, RADIM SIKL SAYING:

“This radar is unique because apart from detecting movement, like walking or moving limbs, it also detects the movement of the thorax while breathing. The other difference to similar radars is that it can detect a person in a 3D space and not on a flat surface up to the distance of forty meters.”

By counting the lines of the grid, users can see exactly how far a person is located from the radar. In this case, one static target is about three-and-a-half meters away, slightly on the right. A moving target is two-and-a-half meters to the right of the radar. And because of its unique capabilities, she calls these many different uses for the compact device.

(SOUNDBITE) (Czech) HEAD OF RETIA SALES AND MARKETING, RADIM SIKL SAYING:

“The Retwis radar is developed to find people behind solid barriers like walls or under the covers of lorries – it finds primarily people who are alive. As well as security units, it can also be used for rescuing people, because it enables you to find people under rubble.”

The Retwis weighs 3 kilograms and is built to last for six hours. The older type was sold mainly in countries affected by armed conflicts but because of the worsening security situation, the company says its seeing an increased interest from European clients.
