Forensic Technology created the Integrated Ballistics Identification System (IBIS) in 1991. IBIS technology can find the “needle in the haystack”, suggesting possible matches between pairs of spent bullets and cartridge cases, at speeds well beyond human capacity, in order to help forensic experts give detectives more timely information about crimes, guns, and suspects.
We partner with hundreds of public safety agencies in over 60 countries, providing cost-effective and sustainable solutions. With vast experience in scalable-networked solutions, we employ a dedicated team of engineering, forensic, and law enforcement professionals around the world. Forensic Technology is customer-driven, with a worldwide 24/7-customer support network and dedicated training facilities.
We offer a solid corporate infrastructure that governments depend upon for ballistics and firearms identification. When used independently, our products are powerful law enforcement tools. When these components are connected to form seamless systems and networks they can take crime fighting to new levels of performance.
In 2011, Forensic Technology acquired Projectina Ltd. a specialized Swiss company in the field of computation, development and manufacture of optical and opto-electronical components and systems for demanding technical areas.
In 2014, Forensic Technology was acquired by Ultra Electronics. The acquisition is an excellent opportunity for both companies to leverage each other’s strengths by ensuring continued investment in emerging technologies and building on the existing relationships and support our customers have come to expect.
