Objective Identification of Bullets Based on 3D Pattern Matching and Line Counting Scores
By Danny Roberge, Alain Beauchamp and Serge Levesque
Firearm examiners have developed two distinct approaches to bullet identification: pattern matching and line counting. The emergence of technology enabling the capture of surface topographies down to submicron depth resolution has been the catalyst for the field of computerized objective ballistic identification. The main goal of this study was to develop an objective identification method for bullets fired from conventionally-rifled barrels, and to test this method on public and proprietary bullet 3D image datasets captured at a variety of lateral resolutions.Learn more
