The Mission Darkness™ BlockBox Touch USB is the only collapsible faraday enclosure on the market with a built-in conductive glove, device preview window, large interior space, and USB port allowing the operator to access and extract data on scene, as well as connect to a charging source. Designed specifically for law enforcement and military forensic investigators, the BlockBox Touch USB allows users to operate touch screens in order to conduct cell phone and tablet triage, analysis, and extraction while keeping devices shielded inside. With the high-speed USB filter, time-sensitive data can be extracted in hours, not days. Additionally, being able to keep devices charged indefinitely prevents lockout mode and reduces the amount of time needed to break a passcode, enabling the maximum amount of data extraction and unlocking with tools like GrayKey, Cellebrite, XRY, BlackBag, Oxygen, etc.
The BlockBox Touch USB is built with padded side walls and water-resistant ballistic nylon outer material to ensure that devices and faraday fabric stay protected. The interior faraday chamber includes two layers of high-shielding TitanRF™ Faraday Fabric on all sides with dual paired seam construction. The faraday chamber will block all wireless signals including WiFi (2.4 & 5GHz), Bluetooth, cell signals including 5G networks, GPS, RFID, NFC, and radio signals with 90dB average attenuation from low MHz to 40GHz spectrum.
The faraday chamber uses a NeoLok™ closure system, allowing an operator to effortlessly close the faraday chamber by way of a double roll and strong neodymium magnetic seal holding the roll in place. A quick-snap strap over the roll provides extra security, which is especially useful if transporting shielded devices inside to various locations, such as from the collection site to the lab. This type of closure is preferred for forensic use since the faraday chamber can be opened easily with a glove. The magnetic closure increases the product's overall longevity, compared to faraday enclosures built with Velcro which can damage gloves and wear out with frequent use due to "hard pulling" on the closure area.
The kit includes a slim carrying case plus accompanying accessories, such as a USB A male to A male cable, instructions, and a signal-dampening foam block (which provides a platform to take photos of devices, as well as additional shielding in high-signal strength environments). The BlockBox Touch USB can be transported in a backpack or small bag, making it the perfect analysis enclosure for lab and field operations.
