SOCOM Seeks Quicker Ways of Exploiting Captured Cellphone Data | NDIA

U.S. special operations forces need new technologies to extract and analyze data from captured enemy smartphones and computers, a program manager said May 18.

Cellphones and digital documents can be a source of critical intelligence for elite units charged with hunting down terrorists. But accessing the information can sometimes be a challenge, said Glen Cullen, program manager for sensitive site exploitation at U.S. Special Operations Command’s program executive office for special reconnaissance, surveillance and exploitation.

The command is seeking technologies that can perform tasks quickly on the battlefield and other locations where intelligence is collected, he said.
