The BTS (Base Transceiver Station) measurement is a rising forensics analysis able to fulfil lack of clues given by the mobile devices. Securcube®BTS Tracker performs the scan of the real cell towers coverage, that is the current ‘performance’ of the radio environment, based on variables that can occur, in the area of interest. Asking to the cellular providers, the cells lists obtained have the theoretical coverage, a ‘prediction’ of the expected service area covered by the provider infrastructure. Actually, the cells efficiency is subject to multiple variables (the weather, the network traffic, prioritization, roaming agreement etc.) that can affect importantly the theoretical outlook and this is what for the investigation, needs a careful evaluation to verify suspects’ alibi and presence at the time of the event.
The real coverage can discover how a suspect moved along a way helping the investigator in the search of the right CDRs files to ask to the carrier. This result is useful considering the huge amount of records to analyse every day, so focusing on the specific group of the cells up to the crime dynamics, it is possible to slim down and refine the digital evidence analysis.

What makes Securcube®BTS Tracker stand out
Cells coverage data gathering is an increasing forensics analysis that we put at Police units disposal with the help of BTS Tracker. The idea is to create a synergic cooperation between investigators faced with the cells field test and the ones in the office who evaluate the technical data. The standalone version save time and data sharing can be almost in real time. The mobile app that controls the module is the easiest way of checking the cells measurements, creating a fair balance between the need of skilled telco standards and the clarity of the results obtained.
Securcube®BTS Tracker results overview
Securcube®BTS Tracker Standalone version
Securcube®BTS Tracker Standalone module works side by side with the investigators, it is easy to carry around with battery autonomy to perform for hours field tests. It has a mobile APP to set the scan parameters and have a first look at the result collected in real time (saving data with a first map positioning). The log files gathered during the field tests can be imported and analysed with BTS desktop software. The idea is to create a synergic cooperation between the field test (crime scene) and the onsite examination (office) for a better use and understanding of the telecommunication variables all around the facts, enriching the multiple evidence cross-analysis against anti-forensics.
