Vehicle-Mounted IMSI Catcher

The Hocell Vehicle-Mounted IMSI Catcher (IMSIV50 series) is a cellular signal intelligence solution designed for both stationary and onboard use. It can search and locate cell phones by identifying their IMSI and IMEI numbers. With multiple SDR radios and frequency bands, it efficiently detects mobile terminals across 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G networks from different service providers. Each radio can output up to 50W of RF power, enabling detection at distances exceeding 1000 meters.



The Hocell Vehicle-Mounted IMSI Catcher (IMSIV50 series) is a cellular signal intelligence solution designed for both stationary and onboard use. It can locate cell phones by identifying their IMSI (Individual Mobile Subscriber Identity) and IMEI* numbers. The system includes the main IMSI Catcher equipment, power supply unit, charging management unit, antennas, and a direction-finding device.


It operates on custom cellular bands within the 600MHz to 4.2GHz frequency range, supporting network protocols including 2G, 3G, FDD&TDD LTE, 5G NSA & SA. With multiple SDR radios and frequency bands, it efficiently detects mobile terminals across various network standards from different service providers. Each radio can output up to 50W of RF power, enabling detection at distances exceeding 1000 meters*.


This system is typically utilized for long-distance target searches in both urban and open areas. It’s suitable for law enforcement agencies and security departments, including police, military, and border patrol. It can also be used for search and rescue in urban, rural and open areas by government agencies of emergency management such as earthquake and fire departments, office of civil defense, search and rescue association, or other SAR units.
