Drone Forensics

From the ground up, our experts extract and parse flight controller memory!

Drone Forensics

Drones are not just available to the military anymore, but can be purchased at every big-box store for commercial or personal use. As the use of drones rapidly increases, so too does the need for proper forensic analysis of their data when they are involved in a legal case. Using proprietary techniques and tools developed in-house, we can extract an extensive amount of digital evidence and process it to produce a comprehensive drone forensic analysis or expert opinion.

Drones in flight, landed, or crashed hold a wealth of digital information of interest to investigators. From the aircraft’s flight plans, to who was flying it, these airborne computers can be disassembled and forensically analyzed. As new drone models are released for business and consumer use, our developers reverse-engineer the hardware and software to add innovative support to our proprietary extraction and decoding systems. That way, we are prepared for any drone forensic cases involving this rapidly growing variety of unmanned air vehicles (UAVs).

A drone is like a computer in many ways, it has a CPU, memory, USB port, and likely has a camera. The special characteristic of this computer is that it can fly very fast, deliver illicit substances, cause personal injury, and damage private property. Just because drones are a new technology, the court will not tolerate improper handling of evidence gathering. Our expertise ensures that your drone forensic report is as professional as the court would expect with any other type of forensic analysis.

Any party to an incident involving a drone will benefit from our ability to decipher proprietary log files from any of these unmanned aircraft. Home-built drones made with off-the-shelf parts pose no additional challenge to us in successfully conducting drone forensic analysis. All drone flight controllers are susceptible to having their digital artifacts extracted and analyzed.

Our drone forensics experts can help with forensically sound disassembly, extraction, and analysis of any drones involved in your legal case. We have experience flying them ourselves, personally and professionally, and collect a wide array of drone models to ensure our analysts and R&D team remain at the forefront of the rapidly growing UAV technologies.

Even when the drone is severely damaged by water, impact, or electronically defective, we will utilize our state-of-the-art data recovery lab prior to beginning forensic data extraction and analysis.

Information we can forensically analyze from a drone include:

 Home location
 Flight plans/Favourite Flying Locations
 Historic flight logs
 Deleted records
 Pilot control inputs
 Flight Atmospheric conditions
 Payload weights
 Cloud flight management login
 Pilot-configured settings
