FREDDIE is the ultimate solution in mobile forensic processing power.

FREDDIE is the little brother of our larger FRED unit. Like its older brother, FREDDIE is a highly integrated, flexible and modular forensic platform designed from the ground up for both the acquisition and analysis of computer evidence with the added advantage of being highly portable. FREDDIE uses the same motherboard, and many of the same components, as our larger FRED unit. The removable devices in our custom forensic bays can be used in both FRED and FREDDIE.

The Mobile Computer Forensic Solution

FREDDIE is designed for use on location at electronic crime scenes.  Remove the hard drive(s) from the suspect system and plug them into FREDDIE and acquire the electronic evidence.  FREDDIE is designed to acquire data directly from IDE/EIDE/ATA/SATA/ATAPI/SAS/USB/Firewire hard drives and storage devices.No more worrying about the problems encountered trying to configure parallel devices on suspect equipment in order to use external backup devices.

The UltraBay 3 – Integrated IDE, SATA, SAS, USB and Firewire Write Blockers


The Digital Intelligence UltraBay 3 is included in the uFRED and can be used to acquire a forensically sound image of IDE, SATA, SAS, USB and Firewire drives using your choice of Forensic Imaging software. Your drives may be connected and removed from the UltraBay 3 without having to shut down the workstation. The UltraBay 3 is available on Digital Intelligence uFRED and FREDDIE systems.

Space, Flexibility and Power

FREDDIE comes with two high capacity hard drives.  One of these drives is used for your forensic acquisition and processing tools and the other drive as a work drive for restoring and processing electronic evidence.  With multiple boot menu options, FREDDIE can be booted into data acquisition mode with PDBlock loaded automatically, write protecting the suspect hard drive.  Another boot option can be configured to place FREDDIE in data analysis mode with full access to your forensic analysis tools.

Network Functionality Built In

FREDDIE also has the ability to connect directly to a 10Mb, 100Mb, or even Gigabit Ethernet networks for use as a standard workstation when not processing or acquiring data.  With the addition of Network Analysis software (Packet Analyzer), FREDDIE can even be used to monitor network traffic and communications at the crime scene.
