Earlier this year, we were thrilled to be featured in the AFTE Journal in an article entitled, Portable Forensic Ballistics Examination Instrument: Advanced Ballistics Analysis System (ALIAS), (Volume 43, Number 1 – Winter 2011). The Association of Firearm and Tool Mark Examiners (AFTE) has been a world authority in our field since its inception in 1969. And it was truly an honour to have ALIAS accepted in the organization’s journal. Today, the Pyramidal Technologies team is equally thrilled that Evidence Technology Magazine, the first trade publication in the United States focused exclusively on evidence collection, processing, and preservation, has devoted a cover story to ALIAS in its current issue. The story also mentions ALIAS's primary competitor IBIS, the previous generation of forensic ballistics technology that I helped create in the early 90s.
Introducing ALIAS – the next generation in forensic ballistics
ALIAS is rewriting the rules on how firearm convictions are made
Created by Michael Barrett, the pioneer who brought IBIS to firearms examiners and technicians in the early 90s, ALIAS leads the next generation in forensic ballistics analysis.
ALIAS builds visually rich 3D cartridge case and bullet images, then provides powerful tools to analyze them using topographically sensitive colorization, and adjustable light source and axis orientation.
ALIAS image data is captured by the world’s finest Swiss-built, application-specific interferometer, then processed with a thoroughly modern 64-bit computing and application architecture that rapidly defines 3D data with patented software algorithms.
More than the technology is revolutionary. ALIAS is aggressively priced against competitive offerings. Moreover, five annual support cost options range from zero cost for law enforcement agencies with available IT resources, to platinum coverage that includes 24/7 support and two-hour response time.
Solve more crimes. Convict more criminals. Save more lives. Get the ALIAS advantage. To learn more about ALIAS — the next generation in forensic ballistics — contact the Pyramidal Technologies team today.
