Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Analysis of spent cartridge cases and bullets has been a staple of forensic criminal investigation for almost a century. Since the mid-1980s, computerized databases of images from pieces of ballistic evidence have been developed to help search for potential matches and investigative leads. Ballistic Imaging assesses the current state of ballistic imaging technology and reviews its current use by law enforcement. The report considers the feasibility, accuracy, and technical capability of a national reference ballistic image database including images from test firings of newly manufactured and imported firearms; the intent of such a reference database would be to generate investigative leads from evidence recovered at crime scenes to the place where the source firearm was sold. Ballistic Imaging examines specific improvements to the current technology, including changes from two-dimensional photography of evidence to three-dimensional surface measurement. The report also explores issues surrounding microstamping-the direct etching of known unique identifiers on firearm or ammunition parts-as an alternative approach to a reference ballistic image database.

Riassunto: Ballistic Imaging assesses the state of computer-based imaging technology in forensic firearms identification. The book evaluates the current law enforcement database of images of crime-related cartridge cases and bullets and recommends ways to improve the usefulness of the technology for suggesting leads in criminal investigations. It also advises against the construction of a national reference database that would include images from test-fires of every newly manufactured or imported firearm in the United States. The book also suggests further research on an alternate method for generating an investigative lead to the location where a gun was first sold: ?microstamping,? the direct imprinting of unique identifiers on firearm parts or ammunition.
