GPS and mobile phone research

Research into GPS forensics and security related issues has led to the development of forensic acquisition frameworks that allow law enforcement and intelligence services to determine the historic locations of GPS aware devices. These devices include but are not limited to navigation tools, cameras, and mobile phones.

The investigations focus on acquisition, interpretation, and application of this type of data. This is a rapidly evolving area for technology and research. New models, applications and options in both Phones and GPS devices make this research highly dynamic and cutting edge.
