Saelig is now offering the STE3000FAV2 patented RF test enclosure, designed to give forensics technicians a highly isolated bench-top environment in which to perform electronic-device interrogations of electronic equipment. The device is therefore protected from remote kill, lock, or self-destruct commands, as well as being protected from GPS and location tracking. Attached to the STE3000FAV2 enclosure is a high-quality video and audio recorder for downloading evidentiary stored data. When the electronic device (cellphone, laptop PC, etc.) is placed inside this enclosure, it can be viewed through the LED-illuminated RF-proof window and accessed via silver-mesh RF-tight gloves.
Whether opening a device, swiping it, turning it on, touching screen icons, changing pages, it can be conveniently operated just as if it were on the open bench. Power, chargers, and/or USB cables can all be attached to the device for connection to the investigator’s interrogation PC hardware and software. The device maintains total isolation from a carrier network, regardless of the carrier or the frequency bands used. The device is also fully isolated from Wi-Fi signal sources, including both 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz, covering all 802.11a/b/g/n/ac protocols. Using the built-in digital recorder provides a time-stamped recording of the complete evidence-gathering procedure.
A built-in internal high-resolution color camera captures all activity inside the RF test enclosure, with a resolution designed to see even the smallest font text message on the device’s screen. This video feed, and ambient audio from the device, as well as any narration by the examiner, is all recorded and time-stamped to document procedures and chain of custody. The internal video is RF-filtered out of the chamber and interfaced with a professional law-enforcement high-resolution touch-screen DVR. The image from the internal camera, as seen on the large 5″ DVR touchscreen, is recorded together with an integral time-stamp for future evidentiary use, with 500 GB of storage available. The RF filtered AC power and USB 2.0 connectors are located on a universal removable I/O panel that allows for additional custom connectors and I/O options.
The 27-lb. STE3000FAV2 is designed using rugged aluminum walls (12.8″ H x 18.0″ W x 12.0″ D) with double-lip, long-life RF seals. Tamper-proof hardware and dual padlock latches prohibit unauthorized access and maintain the chain of custody for the devices collected.
Manufactured by Ramsey Electronics, the STE3000FAV2 is available starting at $2,795 from Saelig.
