Drone Data Set

Return to main CFReDS page


The drone images, research results and data on this page were produced as part of the VTO Inc. Drone Forensics Program, sponsored by the United States Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate, Cyber Security Division. For more information visit www.droneforensics.com or contact VTO at droneforensics@vtoinc.com.

How The Drone Data Set Was Created

For their Drone Forensics Program, VTO purchased 79 drones: 30 drone models, ~3 of each model. Each drone was setup and operated in a controlled, geofenced environment. Attempts were then made to acquire and image the data storage areas on each drone, the controller, connected mobile devices and computers. The drones were completely torn down and disassembled to identify data storage areas. Various acquisition methods were applied across each set of drones, e.g., logical, physical, chipoff, etc.

Data Set Contents

The Drone Images section below lists each drone that was part of the program. Individual drones are identified by a Reference Number. The make, model, reference number and a link to the research results is listed for each drone. Clicking the linked reference number takes you to the Google Drive folder that holds all the data collected for that particular drone. This includes the image files for the drone, controller, connected mobile devices, and computer acquisitions and a data sheet. The data sheet contains information such as the GPS coordinate boundaries for the drone's flight, the day it was flown, and the file name, size and hash value for each of the data files for the drone within the Google Drive folder.

Drone Research Results And Documentation

VTO has also made available the results and documentation for their research and examination of each drone model. The research results for each drone model can be found by clicking on the link in the Drone Images section. The following information is included in the results:
