SPYDER FORENSICS – Advanced UAV (Drone) Forensics – September 4-6, 2019
This three-day course will equip you with the practical skills to identify and extract multiple sources of data from drones and their associated controlling devices, in line with recognized best practice.
Our Forensics Drone course will teach investigators and forensic examiners workflows and best practices in the recovery and analysis of small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS) – Drones. Delegates of the course will learn new skills in capturing data from the aircraft, it’s controller and mobile application in a none invasive or destructive process.
Combining leading research from Spyder Forensics and recognized international universities, this course will equip you with the skills necessary to forensically conduct extractions from all elements of UAV system devices and perform analysis of flight data for use as intelligence or as evidence to support the conviction of illegal use.
