The U.S. Secret Service has awarded a $32,540 contract to Ramsey Electronics, of Victor, NY, to supply 26 shielded test enclosures which will enable Secret Service personnel to identify and collect data from wireless communications devices.
Ramsey will be expected to deliver by July 1, 2012 the 26 “RF isolation test products” which can be used for 802.11a, b and g; Bluetooth, RFID and 3G testing. The total small business set-aside contract will be a firm fixed-price award, said the Secret Service in a notice it published on June 7.
“Forensic investigation of cell phones, PDA’s, and other hand-held wireless devices specifically requires complete hands-on manipulation of the wireless device to identify and extract data while maintaining complete RF isolation from the outside world,” explains Ramsey on its Website.
The specially-designed boxes enable Secret Service personnel to troubleshoot, tune, align and test a device in an RF free environment.
“Once closed, a large RF tight viewing window overlooks the entire working area within the enclosure,” says the company’s Website. “Hands-on troubleshooting, tuning and access to the device under test are accomplished using specially designed, silver impregnated, ultra fine mesh gloves that offer excellent manual dexterity and hands-on access to the equipment under test,” says Ramsey.
The company lists its standard price for the STE3000F model as $1,495 each, but seems to have reduced its unit price to about $1,250 for the Secret Service’s procurement of 26 boxes.
