The Complete Forensic Hardware Solution

FRED systems are optimized for stationary laboratory acquisition and analysis. Simply remove the hard drive(s) from the suspect system and plug them into FRED and acquire the digital evidence. FRED will acquire data directly from IDE/EIDE/ATA/SATA/ATAPI/SAS/Firewire/USB hard drives and storage devices and save forensic images to Blu-Ray, DVD, CD or hard drives. FRED systems also acquire data from Blu-Ray, CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, Compact Flash, Micro Drives, Smart Media, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro, xD Cards, Secure Digital Media and Multimedia Cards. Furthermore, with the optional tape drive FRED is capable of archiving to or acquiring evidence from DLT-V4 tapes. All FRED systems include the UltraBay, front panel connections, and removable drive trays so there is no need to open up the processing system to install drives or crawl around the back of the unit to attach devices.

Ventilated Imaging Shelf

Ventilated Imaging ShelfSelected FRED systems include our ventilated imaging shelf for maximum drive cooling during the imaging process:

  • Integrated Retractable imaging shelf (fully retracts into the system when not in use).
  • Dual fans for maximum cooling and surface coverage.
  • On/Off switch to control airflow.
  • Slotted, cushioned, non-conductive, non-skid, surface supports all popular drive sizes (3-1/2", 2-1/2", 1.8", etc).

Fast, Functional and Flexible

FRED systems come with two high capacity hard drives. One of these drives is used for your Operating System(s), forensic acquisition, processing tools and the other drive as a work drive for restoring and processing digital evidence. FRED comes pre-installed with a Dual-Boot Operating System (Win98 DOS, and Windows 7) on the Primary Drive. Additionally, a fully-loaded, pre-configured Suse Linux installation image is also included on DVD for installation if desired. Both hard drives are supplied in shock-mounted removable drive trays. FRED Systems also come with integrated hot-swappable IDE and SATA bays to enable rapid installation and removal of evidence storage drives without the need for rebooting the system.

Network Functionality Built In

All FRED systems can be connected directly to a network (10/100/1000 Mb ethernet) for use as a standard workstation or file server when not processing or acquiring data.
