Ultrasonic acoustic safes ASU-20 and ASU-20A are designed to protect speech and any other acoustic information from leakage through smartphones, tablets and headsets.
The acoustic safe is a box made of natural wood with a built-in ultrasonic acoustic noise generator. The dimensions of the box allow to place up to 20 phones in it. Thanks to the use of powerful noise emitters in close proximity to the microphones of protected devices, reliable suppression of any acoustic information is ensured.
Unlike passive acoustic boxes and jammers, that turn on suppression only when the phone is active, a constantly working jammer in the ultrasonic acoustic safe guarantees complete blocking of smartphones' and headsets' microphones. Ultrasonic energy density inside the closed volume of the acoustic safe reaches up to 300 J/m³, providing very efficient blocking. Almost all of the ultrasound is absorbed by the body of the acoustic safe or reflected inwards. When the lid is closed, the box works silently. Reception of incoming calls and messages is not blocked. When phones are in the box, sounds of calls and messages are heard from outside, and all external sounds inside the box are muted. The operating time of the acoustic safe is not limited.
Acoustic safe is a necessary thing to ensure the confidentiality of negotiations
Why is It Relevant Today?
In the era of push-button telephones, listening to a room through a telephone microphone seemed like a paranoid idea. With the advent of smartphones, this has become a reality.
In addition, there are dozens of programs for Android and iOS that anyone can purchase and use to covertly listen to a room through a smartphone. The search query "listen to phone surroundings" produces a large number of links to such applications. Among them, it is worth mentioning the infamous Pegasus spyware, which was used to spy on politicians and journalists and, apparently, after various modifications aimed at increasing the obscurity of its work, continues to be used.
Conversations may not be transmitted immediately, but recorded in a phone's memory and only then (when network available) be uploaded to the attacker's server. In such a situation, conventional cell phone jammers and Faraday cages are not effective. The best solution is to securely block the microphones of phones and headsets during conversations to prevent leakage of any acoustic information.
Some acoustic safes have disadvantages: 1. Many models use audible noise (noise in the audio range) to create interference. The noise during their operation is heard from the outside and irritate persons during prolonged use. If the sound isolation is so good that the noise is not heard, then the sounds of calls and incoming messages are not heard. 2. There are models (both sonic and ultrasonic) that use stationary white or pink noise to create interference (audible as a uniform hiss). Modern software tools can filter out such noise. 3. Some models turn on interference only at the moment of detection of transmission of some information. This approach is not effective, because the phone can first write data to its memory and only then transmit it.
Our acoustic safes use ultrasonic pseudo-random frequency hopping signal (floating spectrum noise) to make the interference and do not have the above disadvantages.
The question often arises: why ultrasonic jammers (usually installed under the ceiling) designed to suppress voice recorders in rooms do not provide 100% protection and suppress far from all types of devices, while we promise reliable microphone suppression of any device in our acoustic safes? It's all about the protected volumes and the ultrasound energy density. When a jammer operates in an open volume of a room, ultrasonic energy is distributed throughout the entire volume of the room. For example, a relatively small office measuring 5x5 meters with a ceiling height of 3 meters has a volume of 75m³, which is 75,000 liters. At the same time, the volume of the acoustic safe is only a little over 3 liters, and all the ultrasonic energy acts in this volume. Thus, the ultrasonic energy density inside the acoustic safe is thousands of times higher, which ensures reliable blocking of any microphones.
How to Use the Acoustic Safe?
1. Connect the power supply to the connector on the back of the box.
2. Open the box, put phones and headsets in there. If you have ASU-20, press the red button to turn on the noise generator. ASU-20A turns on the noise generator automatically when the lid is closed.
3. After negotiations, take out the phones and turn off the device by pressing the red button (ASU-20) or just leave the box open (ASU-20A).
On the photo, we tried to convey the colors of the boxes as accurately as possible. However, keep in mind that the color tone may vary slightly from box to box. The following colors are available: dark wood, red wood, light wood and oak. Please check the availability of oak color.

Information Security of the Acoustic Safe Itself
It's not a secret that one of the best places to embed eavesdropping devices is the information security devices themselves. The laconic design of our acoustic safes makes it difficult to install any additional electronic blocks. It is possible to supply safes with open covers of electronic compartments for inspection by your security service. The manufacturer's warranty does not cover product failure during inspection.
