Phone Tracking

Tracking a phone can be accomplished in several ways, depending upon several factors. When conducting Phone Tracking of a Target under investigation, the use of our GSM Monitoring technologies offer several methods for a surveillance operator. 

Silent Call Tracking
Silent Call Phone Tracking involves locating a Target by covert means. The GSM Monitoring System is able to initiate a unique cellular frequency that is received by the Target mobile phone.
With stealth in mind, this frequency gives away the Target’s position without alerting the Target (this action is silent). As the system comes closer to the Target phone, the Phone Tracking process provides the user with information to home-in to the Target. This process is used by an operator of the GSM surveillance system model # CC4100 by following the Target’s phone within proximity of the GSM Monitoring System.

Tactical Netting and Locating
Phone Tracking using the Tactical Netting and Locating
method requires the deployment of multiple CC4100 Tactical GSM Interceptors. For a Target using a 3G phone, tracking would involve CC4100 systems operating on 3G.
Because each system would operate in conjunction with one another, an exchange of location data occurs. A handheld portable sub-unit would be placed on location in proximity to the Target. This handheld unit would give indications to the surveillance operator that he is getting closer to the Target being sought. This is a result of the real-time analysis of the data exchange, with indicators that correlate both temporal readings from the CC4100 system and location readings from the handheld sub-unit. The results yield Phone Tracking to a localized area where the Target may be apprehended or followed.

Provisional Mapping and Tracking

With advanced knowledge, a surveillance operator can employ the Provisional Mapping and Tracking method for Phone Tracking. This involves the use of a proprietary logging and location assignment to an area under investigation.
The Surveillance operator would go to the area where the movements of the Target are being sought (before the live Phone Tracking takes place.) Every time the surveillance operator walks or drives in that area, unique readings are collected from the RF energy levels in relationship to their location within the cellular environment.

Those readings are logged and integrated with the Tactical GSM Intercept software. When the live Phone Tracking mission takes place, the prerecorded set of coordinates are then analyzed in relationship to the specific Target Identity of the Target's mobile phone. This analysis takes place in real-time and cross references the prearranged database of geographic records with the Target's current movements.

This process takes place against the backdrop of a digital map of the area, and enables the surveillance operator to follow the Target.
