4G LTE IMSI Catcher


During operations or missions, it is often not necessary to intercept communications.


Detecting, tracing and tracking a suspect on location and on the move is sufficient in most cases. The low-cost, portable and small-sized SHARX 4G LTE IMSI Catcher has been developed precisely for these tasks.

Due to its unique software architecture, it displays the detected TMSI and IMSI of a 4G LTE mobile device and smartphone within seconds in the (on-premises) dashboard and operators mobile app.

The SHARX LTE IMSI Catcher does not downgrade the connection to GSM, it operates natively within the LTE spectrum, without a network being actively influenced or without the communication being intercepted.


This tactical 4G LTE IMSI Catcher is designed so that it can retrieve the TMSI and IMSI without the suspect noticing. It is even compatible with various SDR (Software Defined Radios) and Amplifiers to allow the solution to be deployed as widely as well as unobtrusive as possible.

Normally, the SHARX is a plug & play solution including a targeted short range SDR and Amplifier.


The SHARX is a true tactical IMSI Catcher that operates on 4G LTE (optionally expandable with GSM and Wi-Fi), it is portable and small in size, the SHARX can easily be tucked away in a backpack, briefcase or rugged case.


Law Enforcement: Whether you want to know where a suspect is, whether he is present or with whom the suspect has an appointment. The SHARX gives your team better real-time situational awareness in any situation, anytime, anywhere.

Special Operations: For lone operators or teams it is crucial to be able to carry out assignments safely. Thanks to its portable size, it can help during a RON (Rest Over Night) or be used to determine if you’re being tracked during missions.

Extended SHARX Dashboard

In addition to receiving real-time data, the SHARX IMSI Catcher can be configured remotely, forensic reports can be viewed and correlations can be made using machine learning. All this within a desktop, laptop and mobile friendly comprehensive (managed or self hosted) dashboard.


An example of the displayed information in the dashboard:
– Targeted and correlated data from TMSI’s + IMSI’s
– Country of origin of the native telecom operator
– Hosting telecom provider when roaming
– Location coordinates of the detection

The SHARX gives your team valuable invisible data that can save lives during law enforcement or military operations.
