Measurement Science and Standards in Forensic Firearms Analysis Conference
May 2, 2012
John Paul Jones II
For that reason, NIST OLES is partnering with SWGGUN and The Association of Firearm and Tool Mark Examiners (AFTE) to host the Measurement Science and Standards in Forensic Firearms Analysis 2012 conference. This event, from July 10 to 11, 2012, on the NIST Gaithersburg campus, will allow participants to discuss the current state of firearms analysis techniques—and its limitations—as well as research advancements that support more quantitative measurement techniques. In addition, participants will help develop a roadmap for incorporating quantitative measurements in analysis procedures and the potential barriers to their adoption.
