Forensic Pathways Ltd, UK is collaborating alongside Pyramidal Technologies to deliver ALIAS, ‘The Advanced Ballistics Identification System’ for forensic investigators around the world.
ALIAS creates visually enhanced 3D images of bullets and cartridge cases. ALIAS provides ballistics analysts with powerful analytical tools including, topographically sensitive colorisation, axis orientation and adjustable light source capability. The application-specific interferometer is manufactured in Switzerland using the finest ‘Swiss’ engineering. Importantly, ALIAS offers interoperability with current ballistics identification databases that produce 2D visualisations of bullets and cartridge cases.
ALIAS 3D scanning, cross-correlation and micron-level analysis is both accurate and efficient. Bullet and cartridge case visualisations provide high levels of accuracy at 1/50th of the diameter of a human hair or 2 microns. Furthermore, the ‘three step approach’ (competitor’s products take up to seven steps) speeds up investigations, reduces costs as well as the margin for error. The 3D imaging, correlation, visualisation and confirmation capability provides forensic investigators with an exponential increase in bullet and cartridge data, whilst speeding up investigations and reducing costs.
ALIAS information / data can be shared internally, nationally and or internationally. Bullet and cartridge case images, alongside case related information can be shared with speed, ease and accuracy.
