Forensic Telecommunications Services Ltd. (FTS) is pleased to announce that due to recent technical improvements and casework success, interest in its innovative ‘Chip-Off’ system has lead to the supply of several complete work-stations to overseas law enforcement clients.

FTS has developed the Chip-Off data extraction process to retrieve the physical memory from badly damaged handsets, smartphone devices and other mobile phones unable to be analysed using traditional methods.

Continued investment, research and development in the latest technology and equipment now allows FTS to cater for high capacity memory chips commonly seen in modern smartphones, such as the latest BlackBerry™ and Android™ devices.

Customers of the FTS Chip-Off system can expect to receive all the necessary hardware and software tools to perform this technically challenging process to a high quality standard, plus full training to ensure a low failure rate and an in depth understanding of handling glued, non-glued and stacked chip-sets as seen in most current mobile phone handsets.

FTS has over 9 years experience in chip removal techniques and forensic digital device data recovery. The Chip-Off system is acknowledged as the best method of retrieving vital data that would otherwise remain unobtainable using more traditional extraction techniques.

“The increased interest in our Chip-Off System demonstrates the importance of such a capability to the international law enforcement community and reinforces FTS’ position as a leader in the field of digital forensics.” said Ray Clethro, FTS Managing Director.
