Ultra Forensic Technology is the pioneer of automated ballistics identification, and the creator of IBIS (Integrated Ballistics Identification System) technology used in over 80 countries to combat and prevent firearm crime.
Over the last 30 years, Ultra Forensic Technology has championed innovative technology and invested in research and development that furthers the creation, enhancement, and discovery of new crime-fighting solutions.
From the development of automated acquisition techniques and high-performance correlation algorithms to intuitive analysis tools that are driven by a highly qualified team of scientists, researchers, and experts, Ultra Forensic Technology relentlessly strives to make the world a safer place.
What is IBIS?
The Integrated Ballistics Identification System — or IBIS — is the world’s most advanced ballistic identification solution and has helped public safety agencies solve hundreds of thousands of crimes worldwide.
IBIS technology can find the “needle in the haystack”. By suggesting possible matches between pairs of spent bullets and cartridge cases — at speeds well beyond human capacity — IBIS helps give investigators more timely information about crimes, guns, and suspects.
IBIS can also help reveal previously hidden connections between violent crimes across jurisdictions. This is accomplished through the sharing and comparison of ballistic evidence across a (local, national, or international) network of sites, and allowing public safety agencies unprecedented access to information that will help them solve firearm-related crimes.
For over three decades, Ultra Forensic Technology has cultivated world-class expertise in understanding the unique markings left on spent bullets and cartridge cases from thousands of different firearms and ammunition types. The result is a series of powerful correlation algorithms capable of sifting through millions of exhibits to rapidly provide prospective matches to investigators.
