Ballistics, CSI & Toolmark inspection, Counterfeit & Tampered products

Through GelSight’s use of optical virtual comparative microscopy, a digital image can be used to correlate spent gun cartridges to a seized weapon using GelSight images combined with AI/ML image processing libraries, comparison of suspected counterfeit products to the original equipment manufacturer specification, inspection of drug delivery devices which are discrete transparent packages.

GelSight proudly partners with Cadre Forensics for ballistics. Cadre Forensics’ Virtual Comparison Microscopy (built upon the GelSight photometric stereo platform with unique elastomeric gel cartridges) tools have been validated by peer reviewed publications and independent studies conducted by the U.S. FBI and Canada’s RCMP.
