Oxygen Forensics Continues Leadership Position on Drone Forensics

Tuesday, April 10, 2018 (07:01:21)
Oxygen Forensics, a worldwide developer and provider of advanced forensic data examination tools for mobile devices, cloud services and drones, announced today that its flagship software product, Oxygen Forensic® Detective v. 10.2, offers forensic detectives the industry-first ability to extract all information from a DJI drone with only a USB cable.

The new Oxygen Forensic Detective v.10.2 allows forensics experts to connect the drone to their examination computer via USB cable and conduct a physical collection of the embedded storage chip. Once Oxygen Forensic Detective recognizes the drone, a physical acquisition is available in only a few clicks that then reveals the drone’s complete flight history with GPS locations and metadata. This data includes valuable facts like speed, altitude, direction, and other evidentiary parameters. The drone flight path is then visualized in the built-in Oxygen Forensic® Maps (both online and offline) which gives a clear picture of where the drone has traveled.
