ALIAS fast facts

Pyramidal Technologies is rewriting the rules on how firearm convictions are made — with ALIAS. Created by Michael Barrett, the pioneer who brought IBIS to firearms examiners and technicians in the early 90s, ALIAS leads the next generation in forensic ballistics analysis.

The next generation
ALIAS builds visually rich 3D cartridge and bullet images, then provides powerful tools to analyze them using topographically sensitive colorization, and adjustable light source and axis orientation.
ALIAS image data is captured by the world’s finest Swiss-built, application-specific interferometer, then processed with a thoroughly modern 64-bit computing and application architecture that rapidly defines 3D data with patented software algorithms.
ALIAS’s 3D, micron-level analysis provides previously unheard of accuracy.
And a simplified three-step imaging/correlation/confirmation process speeds the time it takes to achieve convictions in firearm crime cases.

ALIAS price advantage
More than the technology is revolutionary. ALIAS is aggressively priced against competitive offerings. Five annual support cost options range from zero cost for law enforcement agencies with available IT resources, to platinum coverage that includes
24/7 support and two-hour response.

Easily shared data
ALIAS data is also designed to be shared. ALIAS cartridge and bullet images and case-related demographic data are easily exported to departmental, national or international forensic databases across the hall or around the world.

Solve crimes faster
ALIAS gives everyone involved in a firearm crime case the confidence they require to proceed to a successful conviction based on unequivocal ballistics evidence.
