The U.S. Secret Service wants to upgrade its capabilities to intercept voice and data communications, according to a report by Government Security News.

The publication reported that Secret Service wants to replace its current system “with a new, all-inclusive intercept platform that can collect, analyze, decode and reconstruct voice, data and Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) communications.”

Government News Security reported that the agency  is soliciting proposals from vendors. The new system would be used by about 250 Secret Service analysts, monitors and administrators, on a 24/7 basis.

“The system must be able to decode multiple specified common telecommunications application & network protocols,” the agency said, according to the news publication.

It must also be able to  automatically translate intercepted messages in “numerous highly specific foreign languages,” the agency specified.
