Research Topic Description, including Problem Statement:
Current Technical Security Countermeasures (TSCM) tools are various, expensive and a range of physical sizes. All of them together make a useful tool set, but there are operational challenges such as logistics, ease of use, and discretion that are presented in their application.
The modern mobile platforms – i.e., mobile phones and tablets – are a high specification computer processor with a variety of measurement and communications sensors and transducers. These can be exploited to measure the physical world and collect information and measurement data equivalent to the TSCM tools, in a single device.
We are looking to find out how the sensors on a mobile phone (accelerometers, cameras, magnetometers, vibrometers for example) can be used in conjunction with software defined radio to be useful as a tool in monitoring an environmental for technical threats, such as hidden electronic devices.
Key questions – can a phone be used as a TSCM tool to detect hostile threats? Secondly, how effective is that tool when compared to the specific equivalent TSCM tool. Additionally, what are the benefits of collecting data simultaneously and aggregating it at scale?
Key Words: TSCM, mobile phone, tablet, discrete.
