Modern Forensic Technology – RUVIS

The Reflected Ultraviolet Imaging System (RUVIS) was first made available to law enforcement agencies more than a decade ago and is now in use throughout the U.S.A. by Federal, state and municipal agencies, and it has become a valuable aid to governments around the world. RUVIS derives its uniqueness from the fact that this handheld device permits investigators to actually see latent fingerprints on nonporous surfaces BEFORE any attempt is made to develop them using Read more about Modern Forensic Technology – RUVIS[…]

Titanic and Futility( by Morgan Robertson) – similarity.

In 1898, 14 years before the sinking of the Titanic, fantasy writer Morgan Robertson wrote the novel Futility, which told the story of a ship that was sunk — and which bore the name The Titan. But it wasn’t just the name where we can see an uncanny coincidence. Both the fictional (THE TITAN) and real ship (THE TITANIC) were described as unsinkable, had similar technical characteristics, lacked a suitable number of lifeboats, and collided Read more about Titanic and Futility( by Morgan Robertson) – similarity.[…]

APPLICATIONS OF 3D LASER SCANNERS

A 3D scanner is a device that analyses a real-world object or environment to collect data on its shape and possibly its appearance (e.g. colour). The collected data can then be used to construct digital three-dimensional models. Construction industry and civil engineering. Robotic control: e.g. a laser scanner may function as the “eye” of a robot. As-built drawings of bridges, industrial plants, and monuments Documentation of historical sites Site modelling and lay outing Quality control Read more about APPLICATIONS OF 3D LASER SCANNERS[…]

Use of 3D LASER SCANNERS IN INVESTIGATIONS.

A 3D scanner is a device that analyses a real-world object or environment to collect data on its shape and possibly its appearance (e.g. colour). The collected data can then be used to construct digital three-dimensional models. The 3D Scanners are being used for  manufacturing of different products as well  as being used by different agencies like fire department, metrology department, etc. These are basically used for constructions and productions because of their precision measurement Read more about Use of 3D LASER SCANNERS IN INVESTIGATIONS.[…]

3-D Crime Scene Reconstruction in 3 Steps

              Scan. Analyze. Deliver. Crime scene reconstruction can be accomplished in a variety of ways. In some cases, data compiled at the scene, such as location of evidence and blood spatter interpretation, as well as the possible movements and final resting place of the body is later inserted into a computer to provide three-dimensional videos that illustrate what may have happened at the scene. Any crime scene may be Read more about 3-D Crime Scene Reconstruction in 3 Steps[…]

Documentation of crime scene

Documentation of crime scene  One of the most important aspects of any crime scene investigation is properly documenting the crime scene. This documentation provides a record of the evidence found at the scene and the observations of the scene itself at the time it was discovered. A complete and accurate record of the scene is essential for investigating the crime and for presenting the case when it goes to court. Documenting the scene begins with Read more about Documentation of crime scene[…]

Expert Evidence and it’s Admissibility
