In previous work on the MsSAM (Methods to Support Shared Analysis for Mobile Investigators) project, we presented an initial prototype device to be used to support evidence recovery on a crime scene. Using some of the findings from this and combining it with other work for minimal interaction, and shared awareness for strategic field operations, we proposed a system that would support efficient recovery of forensic data from the field with a simple easy-to-use interface which has the same 'look and feel' on a variety of hardware platforms. We then tested this with a group of final year Crime Scene Science students with encouraging results. We then present how this could be used to support real-time, online, multiple investigator collaboration.
