Revector launches ruggedised military-standard covert detection devices

REVECTOR HAS launched a new range of ruggedised military-standard covert detection devices. The technology uses the mobile network to enable police forces, the military, Government security agencies, prison security services and telecoms regulators to detect, track and locate illegal activity and keep members of the public safe.

Armed with more than 20 years’ experience in telecommunications anti-fraud technology, Revector has engineered customised IMSI-catcher devices that are highly configurable and portable, making them ideal for lawful and tactical applications either in-vehicle, on a fixed site or in the airborne domain.

An IMSI is a unique 15-digit number assigned to the SIM card that identifies the mobile user within the network. IMSI-catchers act like a mobile phone network, meaning that nearby mobile phones connect to them. This then gives the authorised user of the IMSI-catcher the ability to monitor activity.

The Detector range of IMSI-catchers includes what Revector badges as “the smallest and most powerful covert detection devices available on the market”.

The range includes a 2G, 3G, 4G and soon-to-be-introduced 5G mobile phone detection, identification, tracking and manipulation system and a covert IMSI-catcher backpack. The lightweight backpack solution can be used in covert operations and is designed to be easily retrofitted into different styles of backpacks, luggage or other covert items to ensure maximum concealment.

Miniaturisation of technology

Andy Gent, CEO of Revector (who served as a guest on Episode 17 of the Security Matters Podcast) commented: “The miniaturisation of technology, combined with our expertise in location monitoring in more than 100 countries, has enabled us to offer this new covert hardware that helps security services worldwide to effectively and rapidly detect potential threats. Whether it’s detecting illicit mobile phone in prisons down to the precise cells or identifying telecoms fraudsters, these new devices help us to work in tandem with our partners in order to identify and intercept potential threats to public and national security.”

Revector delivers security solutions for:

*Mobile phone detection (to accurately monitor the movement and activity of target mobile devices)

*Direction finding (including a portable backpack device designed to locate down to a few metres)  

*Network scanning and data analysis (giving full control and visual representation of activity).

*Further information is available online at
