Topic: A Study on Drone Forensics Framework

Chapter Business Meeting Slides:

Speaker Presentation:

As consumer unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) or drones are used more commonly in public areas, an approach for a drone forensics framework is needed to guide forensics investigators in analyzing recovered drones that entered the unauthorized national airspace system (NAS). The presentation is based on a doctoral research study focused on whether a single framework and multiple frameworks for drone forensics. The data collected through an online survey provided detailed descriptions of the participants’ most commonly used forensics frameworks or guidelines. The data collected from participants in the United States measured the occurrences of the type of guidelines forensics examiners used. The results of the study identified a need for a standard drone forensic framework across digital forensic disciplines and aircraft accident investigation for use by investigators to produce admissible evidence for litigation in the U.S. courts. The research led to a proposed basic drone forensics framework, which can be improved upon in future research.
