Crazy about radars

9 years
and counting ...

For 9 years, the team behind Xandar Kardian focused on one thing and one thing only – digital radar signal processing. Despite potential criticisms about being “out of focus”, we were just obsessed with what you can unlock with radar algorithms.

In fact, we don’t even manufacture the hardware itself. The best one liner intro about Xandar Kardian is that we are the “Google Android or Microsoft” of the radar industry.

We were the first to commercially deploy presence detection solutions into international airports, hotels, banks and office buildings. We were the first to even attempt at people counting with radar, which led to numerous peer reviewed journal publications and patents. Today, it is one of our best sellers having deployed into dozens of buildings in North America and EU. As radar based “vital sign monitoring” has become more well known in the start-up community, we have been doing just that since 2014.

In fact, while we are currently going through FDA 510(k) compliance clearance at the moment for RHR and RR monitoring, over 4 years of R&D is already being done for sleep apnea (OSA), heart arrhythmia(a.Fib) detection, epilepsy detection, memory care & behavioural health monitoring and even blood pressure detection.

Xandar Kardian is a US Delaware C-corp with entities and operations in Seoul South Korea, Toronto, Canada and Singapore. Partner satellite offices in Dubai, Amsterdam and Swiss are also in operation. The company, now in it’s 4th year is currently open for Series A investment round.
