IMAGING FINGERMARKS ON BULLET/CARTRIDGE CASINGS


WHEN: Wednesday 28th October

HOSTS: Laura Dodd, Dr Roberto King

DURATION: 1-hour (including live Q&A)

 

The arrival of Foster+Freeman's new RECOVER LFT technology made it possible for forensic examiners to, for the first time, consistently develop fingermarks on fired ammunition casings.

This discovery led to a new problem - how do you capture/photograph fingermarks on a small, cylindrical, reflective surface.

In this webinar, we'll show you exactly how to utilise different modes of illumination to capture high-quality fingermarks on this notoriously difficult surface.

Getting the best out of Cyanoacrylate fumed marks - Fuming, illumination and imaging techniques

Cyanoacrylate or 'superglue' fuming is one of the most widely used techniques in forensic fingerprint laboratories worldwide.

First discovered in the late 1970s, the method of heating 'glue' to the point that it evaporates, binding itself to any latent fingermarks, is so simple and effective that there has been very little reason for it to change during the 40+ years it has been in use.

However, while the method of fuming may not have changed, there have been significant advances in the way that we visualise and examine the resulting marks...

VSC - New Developments in Questioned Document Examination

Thanks to the proliferation of high-quality image editing software and professional printing equipment, it is necessary for security printers and expert document examiners alike to continually upgrade the technology that they work with if they are to stay ahead of high tech counterfeiters and fraudsters.

With this in mind, Foster+Freeman invests heavily in the research and design of new and improved technologies for the examination of questioned documents.

The company’s VSC range of document examination instruments include a number of future-proofing hardware components and undergoes continual software development, regularly adding new features such as 3D imaging.
