Cellular Interception

Netline’s Hawk interception systems provide both semi-active and passive cell phone surveillance and interception in a variety of form factors tailored to customer requirements: rack mounted vehicular, man-portable Trolley, ManPack, Covert models. Hawk Interception systems perform active real-time cellular monitoring, covering GSM/DCS, PCS, UMTS and other standards.

The Hawk active systems simulate a full Man-in-the-Middle cellular base station by providing best operation parameters for mobile phones in the operating area. Mobile phones in the area will register to the Hawk ‘s fake base station (BTS) thus enabling monitoring by the system.


The Hawk passive system is a reception system that passively intercepts all signals exchanged between mobile 2G phones and the serving GSM network. The system operates without any transmission and is therefore undetectable.
