Walkthrough: Forensic Falcon NEO From Logicube

Welcome to Logicube’s tutorial on the Forensic Falcon NEO. In this session, we’ll conduct a product tour, including all of the various ports available, and show you how hard drives are connected to the Falcon NEO.

At the front of the Falcon NEO you will find two USB 3.0 ports that can be used as destination ports. On the top of the unit is the touchscreen display. On the rear of the Falcon NEO you will find two power points; two fans; two network ports; and an HDMI port.

On the left, or Source, side of the Falcon NEO you will find two SAS / SATA ports, one USB 3.0 port, and one PCIE port. All ports on the Source side of Falcon NEO are write-protected.

On the right side, or Destination side, of Falcon NEO, you will find two SAS / SATA, two SATA, one USB 3.0, and one PCIE port.

It’s easy to connect hard drives to the Falcon NEO. Here we have connected one SATA suspect SSD to the Source, or write-protected, side of the Falcon NEO; and one SATA SSD to the Destination side of Falcon NEO.

You can continue to add hard drives to both the Source and Destination sides of Falcon NEO. The NEO supports four source drives and eight destinations.

We’ve now added a second SATA drive to the Source port of the Falcon NEO, and we’ve also added a second SATA drive to the Destination side of the Falcon NEO.

Here we’ve added a USB enclosure to the Source side of the Falcon NEO, and a third SATA drive to the Destination side.

Continuing on, we’ve added a PCIE M.2 drive to the PCIE source port and a fourth SATA drive to the destination SATA port.

Now that we have all four Source ports populated, we’ll continue to add drives to the Destination side of Falcon NEO. Here we’ve connected a USB enclosure to the USB 3.0 port on the Destination side.

A PCIE drive is now connected to the PCIE port on the Destination side of Falcon NEO. A seventh drive, a USB flash drive, is now added to the front destination USB 3.0 port.

Now we’ve added a final eighth drive: a USB flash drive to the second destination USB 3.0 port on the front of the Falcon NEO. All USB ports on the Falcon NEO can be converted to SATA using a USB-to-SATA adaptor.

The Falcon NEO now has a full complement of drives connected: four source drives and eight destinations.

Using the Falcon NEO you can image from four source drives to eight destinations simultaneously. You can easily set up imaging tasks, wipe tasks and hash tasks to all run concurrently directly from the user interface on the Falcon NEO display, or by using a web browser and a PC, operate the Falcon NEO remotely, as seen here.

The Falcon NEO can reach speeds of 50 gigabytes a minute for one-to-one imaging.
