We use the REI OSCOR Green 24 Ghz, which is the latest and most common industry standard spectrum analyzer. This devices will scan the radio spectrum from 10Khz to 24GHz and identify LIVE frequencies in the airwaves. The technician will take an outdoor reference scan and then compare it to one or more scans acquired inside the target areas. The analyzer will identify those signals that are stronger in the target area, which are then demodulated to determine the signal source, type or threat.
REI - ORION 2.4 Non-Linear Junction Detector
Not all bugging devices transmit a radio signal such as a digital recorders, or the bugging device may be off during the sweep. The REI ORION 2.4 Non-Linerar Junction Detector (NLJD) offers the latest detection technology and is designed to locate the presence of ANY electronic components as small as a grain of rice. This is an extremely essential tool as the bugging device could be concealed inside furniture, wall fixtures, or everyday devices that could easily be missed by a physical search.
REI - TALAN Telephone & Line Analyzer
This device will conduct a comprehensive sweep and analysis of your residence or business telephone lines. The TALAN is able to analyze, inspect and test copper wire lines as well as digital and Voice Over IP (VOIP) telephone lines for taps and eavesdropping devices. The VOIP analysis software will test internet protocol packet traffic for source and destination addresses, header type, and packet statistics. This device is essential for digital and VOIP business phone lines. This is also a great tool for checking residence phone lines connected to local cable service providers.
This device is a high gain audio amplifier used to detect and identify certain types of surveillance devices attached to telephone wiring, LAN and server systems, AC power, and alarm wiring.
VPC-62 Video Pole Camera
The VPC-62 Video Pole Camera extends the view of surroundings above drop ceilings, behind immovable objects, around corners or other hard-to-reach areas—even in dark situations. This allows the TSCM Technician to search areas where a hidden camera or transmitter could have been placed. It will also allow the technician to follow wires that could be connected to microphones and speakers.
FLIR Infrared Thermal Camera
This amazing device will detect the active heat signature of a bugging device that may be hidden in the walls, ceilings, floors, furniture, fixtures, pillows, stuffed animals, and air vents. Your technician should be using a thermal camera to properly sweep the area.
This device allows the TSCM technician to look inside the air vents in a residence as well as those in a vehicle dash to detect microphones or covert video cameras. This will also allow the technician to view areas out of reach such as behind or under furniture, above cabinets, or other areas not easily accessible to the technician. If your TSCM technician does not have a video borescope DO NOT hire them!
Cell Phone Detector
The WolfHound Pro device will locate active hidden cell phones, GSM bugs, and GPS trackers. The direction antenna allows the technician to locate and detect cell phones in either standby mode, during active voice conversations, text or data transmissions, or live GPS tracking bursts. This is an essential device for detecting GSM bugs and GPS trackers.
Broadband RF Detector/Probes
The most common are the REI CPM-700 and the REI ANDRE. Each of these devices are designed to help the TSCM technician locate the source of RF (Radio Frequency) transmissions. The advanced kit will contain eight probes antennas for investigative specific bands within the optimized detection range. The technician can perform 10 tests using the various probes. If your TSCM technician does not have a CPM700 or an ANDRE, DO NOT hire them!
Just because a person or agency promotes bug sweeps on their website it doesn’t mean they either have the right equipment, training or experience. Most professional TSCM technicians use more than $150,000 worth of sophisticated electronic bug detection equipment. That’s why you need to know what questions to ask to identify true professional TSCM technicians and weed out private investigators with spy shop gear.
