Forensic Radio Survey Techniques for Cell Site Analysis

By Joseph Hoy - Digital Forensics Expert

Forensic Radio Survey Techniques for Cell Site Analysis This book is intended to be used as both a text book and as an aide memoire handbook by forensic radio survey engineers, particularly those working for official police agencies. The main part of the book focuses on radio surveys, the various types of survey, the techniques employed for each survey type and the considerations and potential problems that can be encountered when surveying different types of network. The final section deals with processing and interpreting the results of radio surveys and examines the forensic information that can be gained from them. It also introduces some of the basic ideas of cell site analysis and indicates how this discipline can be enhanced with radio survey information.

The book provides a simple but detailed overview of the operation of cellular networks (including GSM, UMTS, LTE and CDMAOne/CDMA2000), offering an overview of the technical theories that underpin cellular radio systems , presents basic radio theory and offers a simple explanation of the mathematical concepts that underlie radio signal measurement scales such as dB and dBm. Provides an overview of cell tower technology and best practices for professionals involved in cell site analysis and cell tower research, engineering and acquisitions Considers the problems that can be encountered when surveying different types of network and offers solutions to those problems Discusses the processing and interpretation of radio survey results and examines the forensic information that can be gained from them
