It looks like a phone outlet, but it is a bug

novembre 20, 2010 Technology No Commenti

As we have seen in dozens of spy movies, when a secret agent or a police officer wants to intercept phone calls of a suspect or an enemy spy, one of the most common tricks is to pose as a telephone company worker, or an electrician, and sneak into their target’s apartment or lobby for a supposed “repair” that only serves the purpose of planting a bug or a hidden microphone.

Nowadays, if on hand, for mobile phone interception it is not always necessary to be physically near the phone itself, but all it takes is the right equipment to pick up the conversation through the airwaves, for interception on landlines, you still need to resort to tricks like the ones seen in movies to plant a transmitter on the telephone line wires or inside the home handset.

In this sense, the use of a telephone bugging device concealed, for example, on the phone jack, allows you to listen to conversations taking place on all phones that use that line, and through its small UHF transmitter hidden inside the outlet, to transmit the intelligence via radio to a listener stationed at a safe distance and with a suitable receiver.

The UHF transmitter, among other things, is powered directly from the small electricity flow running through the phone line, so there is no need to change batteries or worry that they may run out.

For more details on the various types of phone bugs on the market, and to find the one that best suits your needs in the audio surveillance field, you can visit the Endoacustica website, and contact our consultants who will surely help you choose the right tool for you.

No annoying cell phones, thanks to a handkerchief

novembre 20, 2010 Technology No Commenti

For once, since it’s Friday and the weekend is coming, we want to allow us a little “light” diversion, talking about an item which, more than having a true utility function, has a “diplomatic” one, so to speak.

It is called Phone Kerchief, and it basically is, yes, a handkerchief that you can use to cover your phone. Thanks to the particular material of which it is made up of, the tissue is able to block the phone signal, preventing it from working and allowing its user to devote full attention to their counterparts or to an important meeting.

As a further sign of courtesy, the Phone Kerchief also has a small embroidery that reads “My phone is off for you“, which the wearer can use to communicate to the person in front of them that their conversation is more important than any incoming phone call.

Of course, the first thing that might come to anyone’s mind ask is that maybe, instead of spending $60 for a handkerchief in shielding material, it may be wiser to save a few bucks and turn off the phone with a simple gesture, but you know, marketing’s ways are not always so rational…

If you need to block all mobile traffic within a certain environment, such as a conference room during a meeting or a private negotiation, then it is surely wiser to use a much more advanced, although less “diplomatic”, technological support such as a jammer, which can block incoming calls as well as outgoing; a jammer is certainly much safer and more effective than the use of a simple handkerchief, and it also prevents prying ears from hearing the contents of your conversations.

Laser microphone for remote listening

novembre 18, 2010 Technology No Commenti

As we have seen in a recent article, law enforcement officers working on investigation activities do not always have the chance to come close to their suspects to gather information, install miniature cameras or bugs to eavesdrop on conversations and so forth, to avoid putting their own safety at risk, or jeopardizing the whole operation.

To avoid taking unnecessary risks, but still be able to intercept conversations that take place in a closed room, there are alternatives provided by modern surveillance technology, for example such as laser microphones.

A laser microphone, as the name suggests, uses an invisible laser beam that is pointed at a window glass, up to a maximum distance of more than a mile. This beam is able to “read” the vibrations of the glass itself, vibrations caused by sounds and voices coming from the room and behind the window.

The laser beam reflected on the glass, is subsequently picked up by a receiver located at the right angle to meet the reflection. The receiver, combined with a decoding system, is able to convert the laser pulses, as influenced by the vibrations on the glass, into sounds and voices, with great clarity of sound, so that you can listen to them in absolute security, and determine what happens behind that window.

The use of this technology by law enforcement has proved most useful in investigations on organized crime, and operators gave a positive feedback on it, mainly because it makes operating conditions much safer.

Robot snake, kill it and it will multiply

novembre 18, 2010 Technology 1 Commento

When we were kids, in the countryside, we all played with earthworms, amused at how killing them by cutting them in two would have no success, and it would actually end up creating two of them. Apparently, the Israeli military researchers seem to have been inspired by earthworms to create their snake robot.

In fact, if you try to neutralize it, by shooting or throwing a grenade, each one of the segments that make it up will become independent and continue to move on its own and do its job, just like some sort of high technology worm.

Each one of the small robots is equipped with a processor that serves as “brains“, an array of sensors, a motor and batteries to provide power. As long as the various segments are joined together, the robot can be used for example for climbing trees or walls, inspect pipes, underground tunnels (such as those used to smuggle weapons into the Gaza Strip), or otherwise to carry out missions in places difficult to reach with traditional video surveillance systems.

Each of its modules can be configured and programmed to perform different tasks, including planting a bugging device, collecting pictures or leaving a bomb. Should the snake be attacked, any explosion would result in the separation of each one of the individual modules, which would at that point carry out the missions for which they were individually programmed.

The standard version of the snake robot weighs about 6 kilograms, but the weight and length can be increased or decreased by simply adding or removing segments, depending on the mission you want to accomplish.
Currently, it has been presented at the Israeli Conference on Robotics, but it is still in its testing phase, and once completed, mass production will begin for use by the Israeli Defense Forces.

A watch to spy on those around you

novembre 17, 2010 Technology No Commenti

Often the best way to hide something is to keep it right in front of others, or if it is a very small object, to hide it in a visible place, where nobody could ever think about looking for it, because it would be too obvious.

This principle is applied very often when we talk about surveillance, with bugs and transmitters hidden in everyday objects where no one would look for a hidden microphone.

For example, this is the case with the GSM Watch, a watch, as the name suggests, that can also function as a phone, thanks to the housing inside which can hold an ordinary SIM card. The GSM Watch is connected via Bluetooth to a few other miniaturized devices, such as a micro earpiece to be placed inside the ear canal and a necklace, with a pendant that contains a tiny microphone.

These three items together form an awesome system for remote listening that allows the wearer to pick up, through the microphone on the necklace, all sounds and voices around them, and to transmit them remotely, to a preset phone number, thanks to the SIM card contained inside the watch.

Those who are on the other side of the phone can then listen to what is happening without anyone noticing, and in an equally discreet way, send instructions and operational information to the wearer of the earpiece. With this full system, you can gather information in real time, send them to the outside world where they will be analyzed and from where one can determine the best course of action to be followed in situations such as a confidential meeting, a difficult negotiation a police investigation.

For more information on the possible applications of GSM Watch, you can visit the Endoacustica website where you will find an array of articles for discreet intelligence and information gathering.

Mass SMS to all phones in a given location is now possible

novembre 17, 2010 Technology No Commenti

It could be a first step towards a some sort of advertising Big Brother, which follows our cell phones everywhere to tell us that we really need to buy something which, incidentally, is on sale just a few meters away. If used in the right way, however, the BMC (Broadcast Message Center) system, developed by Alcatel-Lucent could on the contrary be very useful, especially in situations of emergency or danger.

The BMC system, in fact, can send text messages to all mobile phones within its operating range, regardless of the mobile phone provider.

In the intention of those who created this system, BMC should be used as a public utility service, for example by a governmental body in case of emergencies such as an earthquake, a flood, a gas leak, an approaching tornado or rainstorm, or otherwise, in order to make it possible, for those who find themselves near the danger zone, to flee to a safe place or to take adequate measures to face the emergency.

It could also be used to send messages to all motorists on a road where an accident occurred, to prevent formation of queues, or to evacuate an airport or a public place in the event of a bomb alert. In short, the possibilities of use are certainly several, and thanks to its flexibility BMC, which can cover an area ranging from a few hundred square meters to entire cities, can be used both as an utility service and to send targeted marketing messages.

Of course, those who use a mobile phone hope to never receive a message via BMC, either as a warning due to emergency or as an annoying advertising message!

A bug to listen through the glass of a window

novembre 17, 2010 Technology No Commenti

When you need to listen to what happens inside a room, but you do not have the possibility to gain direct access to this environment to listen with your own ears, you must work to find an alternative.

This also applies to the police or private detectives, when they need to gather evidence against dangerous criminals or for cases of industrial espionage; in such cases, they can use bugs to listen to conversations or telephone calls. Unfortunately, for security reasons it is not always possible to plant those bugs in the room to be monitored.

The audio surveillance technology, however, still gives us the right tools to be able to eavesdrop even indoors or in not accessible places, for example by using a stethoscope bug.

As the name suggests, a bug of this kind works in a way that is very similar to our doctor’s stethoscope: by placing it, for example, on a window, its sensor will be able to read the movements and vibrations of the glass itself, caused by noise and voices coming from the opposite side of the glass, inside the room.

These vibrations are then transmitted via radio to a receiver stationed at a safe distance. The receiver, through a decoder, converts the pulses received by the bug into sounds and voices, enabling you to safely listen to what happens inside, and gather any information that can be important for the investigation, while sitting at a safe distance.

On the market, there are several other types of environmental bugs to suit any purpose and application in the surveillance field. To see them all, and to find the one with the features that best suit your needs, you can visit Endoacustica, a leader since years in this particular industry.

Electricity almost everywhere, thanks to a hook

novembre 16, 2010 Technology No Commenti

The cables that carry electricity reach almost everywhere, to bring power in our homes and our offices. But for those who are engaged in war zones, having access to power lines can often be life saving.

For example, American soldiers deployed in mountainous or desert areas, such as Iraq or Afghanistan, may face serious problems if their supply of electronic devices (laptops, navigation systems and various sensors) should end up with dead batteries and no chance to attach them to an electrical outlet for recharging.

To provide power in such situations, an engineer from an USAF research laboratory in Dayton, Ohio has created RAPS (Remote Auxiliary Power System), a device consisting essentially of a hook, a small blade and a cable.

When you are near a power line that carries electricity from one town to another, or from the power line to a home, those who use the RAPS will only have to place the hook on the cable. The small blade contained in it makes a small cut in the sheath that covers the cable, and a conductive surface on the inside of the hook comes in contact with the bare cable, thus harnessing electricity.

The energy is then sent through another shielded cable, directly to a transformer that converts AC power into DC, using it to recharge the batteries of any device that is connected to it.

The RAPS was also tested for use in bad weather, when rain makes the cables wet, and hooking to a high voltage cable may not sound like a great idea after all. Even in such occasions, the soldiers will be able to supply energy to their tools, to stay in communication with fellow soldiers and to help protect themselves from the dangers of war.

A Bluetooth headset or a bug?

novembre 16, 2010 Technology No Commenti

When, some years ago, the first Bluetooth headsets were starting to be used to talk through our mobile phone without removing it from our pocket, those who used them were often looked at in a strange or suspicious way, because they seemed to be talking to themselves in the middle of the road.

Nowadays, the use of this accessory for our phones is so widespread that a person who seemingly talks to no one in the street is no longer a surprise, nor does the headset raise any suspicion, even when it is worn without using to talk on the phone.

By exploiting this attitude towards our mobile phones’ accessories, audio surveillance industry has seen fit to use the Bluetooth headset as an ideal vehicle for discreet collection of confidential information and police intelligence.

In fact, no one would suspect that what looks like a normal headset conceals a bug, which in turn contains a tiny radio transmitter. Thanks to these features, the headset is used as a sort of radio antenna to pick up the conversations around it and transmit them to a listener stationed at a safe distance.
In addition, the Bluetooth bug intercepts transmissions that take place in the same way, so if someone uses the same type of headset to talk on the phone, you can secretly listen to conversations and transmit them remotely.
In this way, the information discussed during an important business meeting may be sent to the outside world, and using the headset in a hidden way (for example by keeping it in the pocket of your jacket, where it will seem to be switched off), no one will realize that they are being intercepted.

For more information on how to use the Bluetooth headset and other devices for audio surveillance, you can visit the Endoacustica website to find the right item that suits your needs in this particular field.

A memory 100,000 times faster than any hard disk

novembre 16, 2010 Technology No Commenti

If when you turn on your computer, the waiting time for it to boot seems longer every day, just wait a bit more: only 5 or 7 years, and your patience may be rewarded with computers that will be ready in literally an instant.

In fact, at IBM, in cooperation with the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne in Switzerland, researchers are working to develop the so-called Racetrack Memory, a revolutionary data storage system that, in addition to being resistant to shock, will be up to 100,000 times faster than current hard disks, while consuming 300 times less energy.

This is achieved thanks to nanotechnology. The Racetrack Memory stores data in magnetic form, in a manner similar to that of old video cassettes, but instead of a moving magnetic tape, data is saved on the very small, and immovable, nanowires. The information is saved on these wires using the electrons’ spin instead of an electronic charge, and can travel up to several hundreds of meters per second.

According to EPFL, in one of these nanowires it will be possible to save the entire contents of a videotape and read it in less than a second. If you think that on a single chip you can place millions or billions of thin wires, you have an idea of how much data we’re talking about, and of the speed of access to that data.

Thanks to this technology it will be possible (at last!) to turn on your computer instantly, and access data contained in it in an infinitely faster way than with current hard drives. Also, because unlike conventional hard disks, the Racetrack Memory does not have moving parts, you can rewrite it endless times, all with an energy consumption which is several hundred times lower.

There are still many obstacles to overcome before commercialization, but for those used to waiting for their computers to boot, a few years are nothing…
