Document

Release Date: 2017-09-13 Document Date: 2005-01-31
Insurgents in Iraq triggered bombs using "cordless" phone systems that involved a base station and a number of associated wireless handsets. Target Exploitation operators discovered that they could plug a confiscated phone into a laptop's microphone jack, record a sound file, and use the recording to geolocate the base station. "As a result," SIDtoday reported, "a principal component in many [bombs] can now be targeted and hopefully, the... makers neutralized."

The U.S. Marshals Service and SID signed a memorandum of understanding in 2004. SID will provide SIGINT to help the USMS track down foreign fugitives and the two agencies will share information about different analysis techniques.
