MSAB and URSA Inc. Partner on Drone Forensic Technology

April 12, 2018  | 

MSAB, a global leader in mobile forensics solutions, has partnered with URSA Inc., expanding tremendously on its’ drone forensic capabilities.

URSA’s Idetic Unmanned tools are designed to collect, integrate, analyze, and present UAV-related data. The company provides the most accurate understanding of drone telemetry data and metadata to support academic, law enforcement, insurance, and intelligence investigations in the rapidly evolving unmanned vehicle and robotics ecosystem.

David Kovar, CTO and co-founder of URSA is recognized as a leading expert on drone forensics. He serves as a subject matter expert and consultant to MSAB, supporting the company's development of expanded drone forensics capabilities. MSAB’s industry leading Mobile Forensic Ecosystem allows investigators to quickly extract and analyze data from mobile devices, including drones. MSAB's leading products, XRY and XAMN, enable users to extract data from mobile devices and serves as an analytical tool for visualizing, searching and analyzing that data. XRY now supports extraction of data from a number of popular drone models, allowing investigators to see flight path data and other data that can assist their investigations and enforcement activities involving illegal drones.

“The use of drones for illegal activities has grown tremendously over the last several years,” said Joel Bollö, MSAB CEO. “From smuggling contraband into prisons to flying drugs across international borders, criminal enterprises are becoming more sophisticated and adept in their use of this technology. Our partnership with URSA will provide law enforcement with the tools they need to combat these growing incidents.”

Bollö and Kovar recently co-authored an editorial with Digital Forensic Magazine on the challenges and opportunities investigators now face with UAV’s. To read and download the complete article, click here.
