Employee must be able to sort evidence cartridge cases by class characteristics to be entered into the system. (National Integrated Ballistics Information Network)/ (Integrated Ballistics Identification System) 1.0 INTRODUCTION. The Integrated Ballistics Identification System (IBIS) is a computerized system that acquires digital images of fired cartridge cases collected from crime scenes and test-fired cartridge cases from firearms seized during criminal investigations. Through the Integrated Ballistic Identification System (IBIS) software developed by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), the data is then cross-referenced and any potential candidates are identified as a match.³ It should be noted that these systems are not designed to substitute the firearms examiner, but only to assist in his task. The IBIS Brasstrax systems image the primer (breech face) area, the firing pin impressions, and the ejector markings of fired cartridge cases, and the Accidental Characteristics 236 CONTENTS ix 00 nafte dalrmple 2e f2 10/14/15 2:26 PM Page i In partnership with Forensic Technology, this network connects The acquired images are entered into the National Integrated Ballistic IBIN is a platform for the large-scale international sharing and comparing of ballistics data. The Integrated Ballistics Identification System (IBIS) is the equipment and program used to upload images of fired cartridge cases into the National Integrated Ballistics Identification Network (NIBIN), which is maintained by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). Through the NIBIN program, the ATF deploys Integrated Ballistics Identification System (IBIS) equipment to state and local law enforcement agencies for their use in imaging and comparing crime firearms evidence. The equipment allows NIBIN is an automated computer network developed by the .
