Radar Systems for Through-the-Wall Surveillance Assessment Report Summary

Executive Summary

Radar systems for through-the-wall surveillance are handheld units typically used by law enforcement personnel to detect individuals behind barriers, such as doors, walls, and windows.  These systems enhance situational awareness in operations such as forced entry and hostage rescue when knowledge of the whereabouts of individuals would be beneficial.  In July 2013, the System Assessment and Validation for Emergency Responders (SAVER) Program conducted an operationally oriented assessment of radar systems for through-the-wall surveillance.
