Virtual comparison Microscope helps firearms examiners find agreement on difficult bullets

The IBIS Comparison Microscope

Forensic Technology's IBIS Comparison Microscope (ICM) is a new tool that can assist firearm examiners in finding hard-to-locate areas of agreement that might be elusive under the traditional comparison microscope. By using the surface and shape data acquired by BULLETTRAX-3D, the ICM can give examiners never-before-seen views and options when comparing bullets — especially polygonal-rifled. (May 2010)

Armed criminals on the move leave firearms and related evidence strewn across multiple jurisdictions spanning city, provincial, and national boundaries. This movement can greatly hamper police efforts in solving transnational crimes like the trade in endangered species. Therefore, an intelligence-led policing effort is required.
