The 2077 CDMA will intercept, record, and play back cell phone conversations in a CDMA mobile phone network. It is used by law enforcement and government agencies to monitor and store cdma cellular phone conversations of suspected criminals, militants, terrorists, and those committing espionage.
The 2077 CDMA will also capture SMS (short message service) data. It is a passive system - no signal is transmitted from the system and the cell phone network receives no electromagnetic interference. The system operates by automatically detecting the strongest signal in a CDMA service area. The system intercepts control channels and both sides of a conversation through traffic channels.
