Device Pattern-of-Life Analysis

Beginning on afternoon of January 4th, device identified as "JIG SOD FAN DOWN", (aka Jig) departed Oregon, flying through Denver International Airport, landing at Dulles International Airport before checking into their hotel in Georgetown. JIG visited the National Mall and Freedom Plaza before retiring back at their hotel.

On January 6th, JIG visited the Ellipse and walked around the Washington Monument before returning to the Ellipse. JIG left the Ellipse and walked to the U.S. Capital during the protests. JIG later went to the Grand Hyatt briefly before heading back to their hotel in Georgetown.


JIG SOD FAN DOWN appeared to have circumvented the perimeter of the U.S. Capital grounds during the protests. The JIG device operated from U.S. and "Unknown" based countries and was not attributable to an IP Address or Network. JIG didn't stay with or travel with anyone who also visited both the Grand Hyatt and the U.S. Capital.
