BALİSTİKA® Image Analysis
and Recognition System

When firearms are used, they leave unique characteristic marks on the fired bullet and cartridge cases. By comparing these marks on two different bullets or cartridge cases, it can be determined whether they were fired from the same gun or not. This allows relationships between events to be established.

However, comparison is inherently a challenging process, and as the amount of evidence increases, it becomes increasingly difficult to compare new evidence with existing evidence, prolonging the comparison time. BALİSTİKA® is a product that provides a solution to this problem. With BALİSTİKA®, fired bullet and cartridge cases can be automatically compared, and those fired from the same gun can be identified with high accuracy.

BALİSTİKA®, developed by TÜBİTAK and one of the best ballistic investigation systems in the world, can examine the traces left by weapons on bullets and cartridges cases in 3D. By comparing the obtained 3D evidence images with all the evidence in the database, links between the incidents can be established easily.
