The need for an evolving RFPS methodology

The rise of digital forensic methodologies over the last 20 years, has been in response to an environment where the volume of data available to investigators has grown exponentially.

Criminals have weaponised technology taking advantage of both its availability and technology’s ubiquitous role in all our lives. For example, in 2007 – an iPhone 1 had a maximum memory  capacity of 8 GB. In comparison, today – an iPhone 15 Pro Max has up to 1TB of data.

Written by two experienced criminal justice expert witnesses and Radio Frequency Propagation Survey (RFPS) practitioners, Martin Griffiths, Founder and RF Specialist from Forensic Analytics, and Peter Nuttal, EMEA Solution Architect from Gladiator Forensics, this paper will generate a discussion on multiple aspects of how data can be used in investigations. We explore the role of compliance and regulation, including the introduction in the UK of the Forensic Science Regulators Code of practice.

We look specifically at the role of different methodologies available to law enforcement for RFPS surveys, we explore the different operating practices between the UK and US and finally, we recommend a fresh approach and methodology for conducting RF surveys. In addition, we have a call to arms for law enforcement generally and RF practitioners in particular, as we advocate the
sharing of RF survey data and the creation of a UK national database.
