Firearm and Tool Mark Identification
Forensic Technology offers the world’s most advanced ballistic identification solution, IBIS® (Integrated Ballistic Identification System), which enables the sharing and comparison of significant quantities of exhibit information and images across a network of imaging sites, as well as the automated identification of likely matching bullets or cartridge cases. The latest generation of IBIS technology includes exceptional 3D imaging, advanced comparison algorithms, and a robust infrastructure. It has been designed to meet the needs of police and military organizations that gain actionable information from firearms and their fired ammunition components.
The Quantum 3D Microscope provides firearm and tool mark examiners with the best 3D visual and quantitative tools for common source determination. Firearm and tool mark identification is evolving and now requires 3D measurements to support expert conclusions with objective methods. The Quantum S1 model captures the rifling marks on fired bullets, and on other smallLearn more
The IBIS® | BULLETTRAX acquisition station enables entry of bullet information onto an IBIS network. BULLETTRAX captures high-resolution 2D images and 3D topographic information of a bullet's lands and grooves. It produces an image strip representing a bullet's 360-degree circumference or a combination of regions from bullet fragments.Learn more
IBIS® | MATCHPOINT is the firearm expert's analysis station for reviewing potential matches from IBIS correlation algorithms. High-resolution 2D images and precise 3D topography offer remarkable viewing capabilities and useful alternatives when analyzing cartridge case and bullet markings.Learn more
The Data Concentrator stores data collected from multiple BRASSTRAX and BULLETTRAX acquisition stations. For each acquired exhibit, the Data Concentrator automatically extracts image signatures, generates correlation requests – which are processed by the Correlation Server – and stores correlation results.Learn more
