CPM-700 Counter Surveillance Probe and Monitor The CPM-700 is a broadband receiver that can detect and locate major types of electronic surveillance devices including room, telephone, body bugs, video transmitters, and some tape recorders. A basic CPM700 sweep kit with its custom Cordura case contains all of the items necessary to conduct a low threat sweep. The CPM-700 provides a very important cost effective tool for professional sweep teams, government security personnel, and private citizens with important security needs. This type of instrument is so useful on a sweep that each person on the detail should have at least one of these dedicated to them. In the event that only one piece of equipment can be brought along for the sweep; such as when on an EP team, then this is the one to have. This instrument is also ideal for a private investigator or security manager who needs a limited capacity to perform sweeps but is not able to bring in an outside TSCM specialist. The unit is also perfect for private individuals who wish to discretely perform their own sweeps or bug detection. When the CPM700 is used along with the OSC-5000 and ORION NLJD the three instruments become invaluable in ferreting out even fairly sophisticated eavesdropping devices. Typically, every sweep team will have at least two of these systems on hand at all times, and will typically have one complete system for each person on a sweep team, or protective detail.

All TSCM equipment listed here is Dual-use Munitions List Items (MLI), or Commerce Controlled List Items (CCLI). MLI/CCLI items are highly controlled by the U. S. Government, and cannot be transferred, exported, sold, or given, to a foreign country, a non-U. S. Citizen or National, or a non-permanent U. S. Citizen, without a valid State and/or Commerce Department Export authorization that is issued in advance, and which actually issues forth from the Department of Defense and the U.S. Intelligence Community. Some equipment (or certain end users) even requires a formal authorization by the President of the United States for the transaction, and not even the DOS, DHS, DOC, DOD, DIA, or CIA can override this requirement.
It is the responsibility of the manufacture and of the end-user or purchaser, to comply with applicable requirements, and to obtain all necessary authorizations, licenses, or approvals to facilitate export, transport, possession, or acquisition. The use, disposition, export, import, or re-export of these items are subject to the provisions of law referencing written End-User Certification. Including, but not limited to, the Arms Export Control Act (22 USC 2751 et seq); Export Administration Act 1979 (50 USC App. 2041 et seq); as contained under Executive Order 12924; International Traffic in Arms Regulations (22 CFR 120 et seq); Export Administration Regulations (15 CFR 730 et seq); Foreign Assets Control Regulations (31 CFR 500 et seq); and the Espionage Act (18 USC 793 et seq), the Wassenaar Arrangement, and other treaties and laws. Even providing TSCM training, to someone who is not a U.S. Citizen requires also requires State Department approvals.
All TSCM, TEMPEST, SIGINT, and related equipment without exception is all covered by "The United States Munitions List" under ITAR 121.1, Category XI(b) as Military and Space Electronics, as "electronic systems or equipment designed or modified to counteract electronic surveillance or monitoring."
Most TSCM equipment is considered a Tier 1 defense article, but some more simplistic devices, tools, or systems may qualify only as Tier 2 devices on the USML or "Munitions List". Further, most TSCM equipment also qualifies as ECCN 5A001.e and 5A001 equipment and is subject to the export licensing authority of the Department of State, Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (22 CFR part 121).
By international treaty, most nations have laws that parallel these U.S. Laws (as arms controls), so that it is extremely difficult and costly to legitimately get this equipment across any borders of any country, and if you get caught with it, and you can not prove that you obtained in it very specific legitimate ways you could be in for a very awkward situation, but perhaps even not right away, but eventually.
This equipment, and this style of equipment and function of equipment was all initially designed by the U.S. Military, for purposes of military functions, and various companies evolved their products out of these military originated products, and then sold these new products back to the military which formed a closed loop that reinforced that these systems are still legally considered military arms.
Even if you are a U.S. Citizen and the equipment actually belongs to you and you are merely importing and importing it for your own use, you risk a forfeiture and seizure of all of your equipment that you are traveling with unless your paperwork is spot-on perfect.
Companies that manufacture TSCM and related equipment usually can not make a profit merely selling the equipment legitimately in their own country and they will often play games about the exportability of the gear, or will often falsify export paperwork in order to make an illegal sale (do not be taken for a fool). Generally, you should not trust what the company who actually makes the gear tells you, but instead seek the counsel of someone who actually works with a wide range of equipment across a range of companies and nations who can actually explain it in an unbiased way, these gurus, grey beards, engineers, and wizards can save you vast problems.
Better yet, go to your attorney, have then do some research, and then have THEM contact an expert in TSCM and assist them in gaining an in-depth understanding of the issues, then have them write inquiry letters to government agencies where the function and origin of the equipment is explained and ask for an official ruling from the government, in which your attorney then crafts into a legal memorandum. What the attorney eventually puts into their well researched memorandum will often dramatically be different then what the manufacture of the equipment will tell you.
As any legitimate approval for a transaction takes many weeks, and often months it is important to plan for notable delays, and not to wait until the very last minute to obtain needed gear. It is wisest for the actual end user to contact the U.S. Embassy in the country where the goods will ultimately be used, go through the interview and visitations process with them, initiate the end user approval process, and get approvals for the transaction six, eight, or even ten months in advance of the anticipated purchase from a cold-start. These pre-approvals are vital as they can usually reduce this approval time to less than 45 days (unless the customer is playing games). The custom in the industry is that once payment is made for the goods, the purchaser has only 90 days to perfect and consummate the shipment, so get as much pre-order approvals completed as possible (many companies have a deposit forfeiture policy if you do not get your export approval within 90 days, or double the regular approval cycle for ITAR 121.1 good for pre-approved entities).
Please call us if you have any questions, but generally, we will deal only with the actual end-user of the equipment, and will not deal with intermediaries, middle-men, or brokers. We always play it straight, we will not engage in export fraud, and we will have nothing to do with illegal arms shipments or trafficking. If you want to talk with a well recognized expert on these kinds of munitions and equipment, how to handle legitimate transaction, and avoid problems, then contact us, we can save you a lot of hassles.
The easy to use CPM 700 sweep kit includes a custom Cordura case that contains all items necessary to conduct a limited scope bug sweep. Broadband receivers such as the CPM-700 provide a very important cost-effective tool for sweep teams, government security personnel, and private citizens with important security needs. The CPM-700 is easy to use, and is highly effective with only limited (if any) operator training.
The CPM-700 is very effective for rapidly detecting and locating eavesdropping signals, and is easy to learn and use. There are numerous copies and "knock offs" of the CPM-700 on the market because of its success as a product. While some of the copies may be cheaper, they do not provide the frequency performance and sensitivity of the CPM-700. It will check for hidden phone, room or body transmitters, remote control signals, computer bugs, fax or telex transmitters, video transmitters, pulsed tracking transmitters, spread spectrum, and even wide band frequency hopping or 'burst' transmitters. This highly sensitive detector can locate transmitters as low as 1 micro-watt. The V.L.F. probe tests A.C. outlets, phone lines or suspicious wires for very low frequency 'carrier current' signals. Auxiliary audio input allows the user to listen to telephones or lines for hot mikes, hook switch by-pass, and infinity bugs. Unknown wires and cables can be tested for covert wired microphones. The sweep range and sensitivity in the R.F. mode also detects covert video transmitters.
The CPM-700 is best utilized by passing the RF probe around the surfaces of area being checked, but doing so at a very slow and steady rate, and no faster than that you would use to lay down a coat of latex paint with a four inch paint brush. The Magnetic and Infrared probes are used in a similar manner. With the VLF probe you can test all electrical outlets for carrier current covert eavesdropping devices. The CPM-700 can also detect and locate RF tracking transmitters which may have been installed to follow vehicles. The Acoustic Leakage Probe can be used to test both sides of walls, pipes, air ducts, and other locations where sound could leak from the area being checked and monitored by an eavesdropper with the naked ear. The Acoustic Leakage Probe, ALP700 probe also assists in the placement of acoustic noise generators and audio jammers. The CPM700 can also be used as an automatic monitor mode once a sweep has been conducted to detect and alarm on any changes while one is away. The line probe can be plugged into the auxiliary output of the CPM-700 and used to check any unknown wires and to test for possible eavesdropping activities and/or devices. The 24-hour recorder output and controls will store suspicious sounds on a standard cassette recorder (not included) while you are away.

Normally, we ship orders within 2-3 business days after the order is received (we often ship on the same day), and since we usually ship by express courier any delays are minimal. International shipments may take a little longer due to applicable export restrictions.
BEWARE: There are a huge number of crooked unreliable spy shops that will gladly take your money, but you will not get any equipment in return, or if you do get something it will not be what you ordered. These shady operators are not factory trained, have often never actually owned TSCM equipment or performed a bug sweep, and know virtually nothing about either the equipment being sold or TSCM. There has also been a rash of spyshops advertising this type of equipment at discounted prices (often online or via E-Bay), in almost every case the equipment is stolen, used, damaged, or the customer gets cheated out of their money. In some cases the equipment is used, damaged, or even a stolen unit. Also, beware of spyshops (both online and brick and mortar types) that artificially increase the price, and then offer to sell the equipment at less than half price, but still well above retail ($4995 vs. $2450, when retail is only $2195).
Many of these spyshops rip off graphics and/or materials from this website, and some are so bold as to claim copyright on these stolen materials. A few of them have even stolen materials from this site and then published them in book or CD form which you obtain when you buy equipment from their spyshop. If they are ripping off materials from this site then they are likely going to rip you off as well. Also, if their advertised price with or without their "discount" is more than the prices listed here then you are most likely about to get ripped off.
We are honest, have an excellent reputation, and offer legitimate equipment at fair prices, with favorable availability and shipping. We can, they can't.
EXPAND THE CAPABILITIES OF YOUR CPM-700
MPA-700 Modular Phone Adapter
The MPA-700 Modular Phone Adapter is a "banjo", and you can never have enough of these on a sweep. Gives operator easy access to phone wiring combinations in testing for surveillance devices. This modular adapter allows in-line testing for any plug/jack combination. It includes two 4-pair jacks plus a 152 mm (6 in.) modular cord terminated with a patented 4-pair "universal" plug for accessing any standard 6- or 8-position jack. Individual conductors are broken out by pin number and correspond to eight separate test pads. Test equipment can be securely attached to the test pads using alligator clips. For quick reference in the field, USOC, T568A, and T568B wiring charts are printed right onto the Modapt body. This permits all wire combinations can be checked on both modern single, and multi-pair phone wiring.
CLA-700 Cigarette Lighter
Adapter provides 12 VDC power from automobile socket. Allows user to plug the unit in to vehicle power which is helpful when sweeping an automobile or SUV
NCB-700 Nickel Cadmium (NiCd) Batteries
These batteries can be recharged overnight numerous times. The NCB-700 Rechargeable Nickel Cadmium Battery Pack provides a set of NiCad batteries that replace the alkaline batteries. The authors personal preference is to keep several sets of charged NiCads and stand alone charger available, plus several sets of Alkaline or Lithium batteries as well (just in case of extended usage).
TRP-700 Tape Recorder Patch Cords
The TRP-700 Tape Recorder Patch Cords allows users to leave a CPM-700 in an area and control a small tape recorder. An added benefit is to use these cable to go into a cam-corder to document the sweep.
IRP-700 Infrared Probe
The IRP-700 Infrared Probe will let users test for IR radiation and related devices. Enables the operator to detect and locate surveillance devices that utilize invisible infrared energy as the transmitting medium. This is a very important accessory to obtain as it is one of the few ways to detect laser based eavesdropping devices, covert video transmitters using IR diodes, some fiber optic systems, and similar devices. The IRP-700 Infrared Probe enables users to detect and locate surveillance devices that utilize invisible infrared energy as the transmitting medium such laser-bounce, IRDA, video senders, video camera illuminators, and so on.
MLP-700 Magnetic Leakage Probe
MLP-700 Magnetic Leakage Probe will allow users to detect magnetic fields (as opposed to electrical fields). Enables the operator to detect and locate magnetic recording devices such as audio or video tape recorders. The Magnetic Leakage Probe is very helpful in finding ELF, VLF, and MF signals, and works very well in locating covert video cameras and modern digital voice recorders.
ALP-700 Acoustic Leakage Probe
The ALP-700 Acoustic Leakage Probe is a contact microphone that is used to test for acoustic leakage. The operator can determine the vulnerability of acoustic leakage by placing the ALP-700 against structural objects (i.e. walls, windows).
BMP-1200 Broadband Microwave Probe Upgrade
The Broadband Microwave Probe (BMP-1200) covers 2 GHz to 12 GHz, creating a directional response making locating transmitters easier. The BMP1200 provides enhanced sensitivity over the standard RF probe in the common 2.4 GHz range (video cameras, phones, 802.11 etc.). Includes Acoustic Leakage Probe, Sniffer Probe, and deluxe hard-shell carrying case. The BMP-1200 is backwards compatible with all existing CPM-700 receivers, and provides coverage from 200 Hz to 12 GHz with no holes or gaps. The sniffer probe provides improved detection in RF rich environments where signal saturation may be a problem. The Sniffer probe is a desensitized near-field probe with a detection range from 15 kHz to 3 GHz and is designed to pinpoint bugging devices with a very high level of precision. The deluxe carrying case is a hard shell case with milled foam designed to accommodate the CPM-700 and all accessories including the new probes.
RF Sniffer Probe
Acoustic Leakage Probe
One of the more popular and versatile packages is the "CPM-700 Counter Surveillance Probe Monitor Corporate System" which includes various probes and additional items which provide a compact, yet comprehensive system that can fit into a small briefcase. The CPM-700 is very easy to use, and can be operated by non-technical people.
