CFID – Covert Forensic Imaging Device

Product Code: AP-CFID
The CFID is the world’s smallest handheld battery-powered, forensic collection and imaging device. No yearly licensing required!

CFID was designed for forward-deployed military, intelligence, and law enforcement personnel who need a simple, small, portable, and inconspicuous solution for imaging, cloning, copying, and wiping data from portable media such as USB and SD Cards. The additional capabilities including iOS, Android, and Sim Card and laptop acquisition make the CFID a multipurpose solution for the field and lab use.

Thumb-Drives, SD Cards, Sim Cards, iOS Devices, Android Phones, and Laptops represent the source of the most common forms of digital evidence recovered today. While some computer and cell phone forensic tools are equipped to collect data from these media, a standalone tool dedicated to the task will improve efficiency and free up equipment. Most importantly, however, using a dedicated device will greatly simplify and speed up the process.

The complete CFID kit includes:

  • CFID V3 Device
  • All Required Cables
  • Ethernet Adapter & Card Reader
  • Sim Card Adapters
  • Charger
  • Unlimited Firmware Updates
  • Protective Case
  • Upgradeable to Support UAV
  • Companion Viewing APK

Forensically Image or Clone a device… all from the palm of your hand.

The CFID’s primary functions include: Image, Clone, Copy, Format, Wipe, Mobile Extraction (iOS, Android), UAV Processing, Networking, Sim Card Extraction, each executed through the simple touch screen interface. It captures the serial number and makes a model of each device encountered as well.

The CFID provides 128 GB of SSD internal storage while allowing for external storage as well. When imaging a device, the system creates a folder for each image acquired, and each folder is named with a reference number date-time stamp. The file can be split, compressed, and hashed for as required for reference by the forensic examiner.

Data collection by field operatives can quickly become an increasingly complicated and time-consuming task. While a number of tools have been successfully deployed to capture data from various media types, the scope, and quantity of devices being found warrant a better means of collection. We need a simple, covert, and effective device for portable media acquisition.


  • iOS Extraction
  • Android Extraction
  • Sim Card Extraction, Watchlist, and Analysis
  • Touchscreen 4 Taps to Image
  • 4-6 Hour Battery Life with Indicator
  • Anodized Aluminum Case
  • Very Small & Handheld
  • Multi-Language Support
  • User Selectable Copy Block Size
  • Optional MD5, SHA1,256
  • Configurable Compression
  • Vibration Notification
  • Format Disks

We cannot always send out our most highly trained forensic experts to the front lines to image and collect portable media. Maybe the situation is too dangerous… Maybe the operation has a limited footprint requirement… Maybe the operator did not know they were going to need to do a forensic acquisition and wasn’t able to pack the dedicated write blocker, forensic laptop, dongles, and cables. For this reason, the CFID was meant to be operated by anyone… and anywhere.
