ECHO™-Universal

A platform-agnostic solution for UAV-based mobile phone identification, geolocation, and interrogation.

Automatic configuration and transmit

Survey and analyse the real cellular network quickly and automatically

Quick and accurate handset geolocation

Quickly and automatically identify cellular handset(s) of interest

ECHO™-Universal (ECHO-U™) integrates the award-winning Smith Myers NESIE™ software suite into any compatible UAV platform*, requiring only a power connection to become fully operational. This low SWaP-C package is designed for automatic surveying and emulation of real mobile phone networks, enabling the identification, geolocation, and interrogation of mobile phone handsets and subscribers. Equipped with onboard GPS and a datalink, ECHO-U™ is engineered for easy installation and removal using the ECHO-U™ Quick Release (QR) Mounting System. The QR Mounting System is the only component customized to fit the specific mounting points and power configurations of each UAV it integrates with, ensuring rapid platform integration.

* Dependent on a UAVís capacity to accommodate the weight and spatial requirements of ECHO-U™.

ECHO-U™ is comprised of a Software Defined Radio coupled with proprietary 2G, 3G, and 4G (5G in development) Macro-Cell Protocol Stacks covering all global cellular frequencies.

ECHO-U™ provides rapid identification and location of cellular handsets with industry leading speed. The system offers a comprehensive suite of interrogation and analysis tools that can be used in real-time while the system is fully operational. During an operation, results can be cross-referenced instantly, and ECHO-Uô automatically compares live data to past operations, highlighting any pertinent information for the operator.
