Rohde & Schwarz acquires Camero-Tech’s Security Scanner Business

Rohde & Schwarz has acquired the body scanning technology unit of the company Camero-Tech Ltd. With this acquisition, Rohde & Schwarz has grown its mm-Wave body scanning product portfolio and will strengthen its position in the security market.

Currently R&S has developed the R&S®QPS is a state-of-the-art millimeter-wave security scanner that automatically detects potentially dangerous items carried on the body or in clothing. The scanner can be used for airport security checks, security at public events with a high threat potential and access control at security-related facilities.

The R&S®QPS offers the ideal way to quickly and reliably filter out lower quality bumpers and radomes in production. It furthermore features the possibility of producing spatially resolved mmWave images of the reflectivity and transmittivity of the radome material to detect inhomogeneities within the material.

This strategic investment will cover security checks in sensitive areas with new and cutting edge solutions, including non-aviation and civil infrastructure applications. Rohde & Schwarz has created a new research & development company which is named "SeemPulse Ltd." to pursue this area.
