Description

Automated Ballistic Identification Systems provides a comprehensive reference to automated ballistics identification, detailing for forensic specialists what automated systems and instruments are available, how they work and what they are best used for. As the primary duties of a Firearm and Tool Mark Examiner are to identify, collect, preserve, examine and interpret the ballistic evidence associated with criminal acts, this is an ideal reference that not only includes tactics on how to properly use optical, electronic, measurement and analytical instruments to process and analyze evidence, but also discusses the limitations of said instruments.

Key Features

  • Provides forensic technicians with in-depth reviews of existing technologies, their capabilities and how to utilize the technologies in investigations and research
  • Includes coverage of global ballistic systems used, such as Alias, IBIS, Lucia, Balistika, Papillon and Fireball
  • Includes a foreword/endorsement from Robert Thompson of N.I.S.T., who has an extensive background in firearms and tool mark examination, and is a highly respected member of the AFTE (Association of Firearms and Tool Mark Examiners)

Readership

Forensic scientists, forensic technicians, IBIS technicians, Firearm and Toolmark Examiners and trainees. Lawyers, forensic science graduate and post-graduate students
