This CSAFE Center Wide Meeting Webinar was presented by Eric Hare from Iowa State University on April 14, 2017.

CSAFE researchers at Iowa State University will discuss the advances they have made towards providing firearms examiners with an objective, quantifiable and standard approach to describe the degree of similarity observed between two bullets. Researchers will explain how 3D images of bullet signatures are being used to develop computer assisted algorithms to look at which features hold the most information and enable discrimination between samples. Progress towards developing a signature-based score that quantifies the differences between bullets will also be discussed.
