SkySafe, a company specializing in airspace security and drone defense technology, has recently introduced a certification program for drone forensics. This comprehensive course offers extensive training on the forensic analysis of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS).

Drone Forensics Is A Key Part of the Intelligence Cycle

For first responders to a criminal incident involving a drone, actions or inactions could have serious consequences to the investigation that will follow. Additionally, the data extracted from the downed UAS could be critical to the prosecution of offenders. SkySafe created the Applied UAS Forensics certification course to provide law enforcement and forensic examiners with the skills needed to successfully perform forensic analysis on small commercial and off-the-shelf consumer drones.

SCG Canada’s Covert Forensic Imaging Device (CFID) relies solely on SkySafe for all UAS capabilities, which gives SkySafe an exceptional advantage to provide crucial expertise and education on all facets of UAS forensics. The certification course will concentrate on a range of topics, such as the most effective approaches for confiscating and retrieving UAS devices, along with the appropriate storage, handling, and transportation methods for recovered drones. The course will also furnish comprehensive guidance on conducting UAS teardowns.

“SkySafe is a leader in the drone forensics space,” said SkySafe Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Grant Jordan. “We’re excited to bring drone forensics training and certification to the market. As more drones become available, more people are finding opportunities to use drones for criminal activities. We want to provide law enforcement and investigators with the skills they need to combat these threats and prosecute the offenders.”

The course will also provide practical, hands-on training using a CFID. Participants will acquire analysis skills for extracted artifacts and learn how to evaluate the pattern of life activity to assess the potential threat.

Sarah Frances, Director of Reverse Engineering at SkySafe said, “Our goal is to go beyond just teaching students about the popular tools for data extraction and analysis, and instead provide examiners with the key skills needed to become subject matter experts.”

The first class will be held May 22-24, in San Diego, with additional in-person and virtual classes to follow. To learn more about SkySafe’s drone forensics offerings and register for the certification course, visit
