Ballistics Research, Inc. Announces New Bullet-Capture Technology - Development Will Aid Law Enforcement, National Security

ROME, GA - March 2, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- For the first time ever, crime labs and ballistics researchers can easily capture and retrieve perfectly intact bullets and slugs of all kinds, including hollow points, shotgun slugs and even high-explosive large-caliber military rounds. The Duke Projectile Recovery System consistently achieves results previously considered impossible.

Developed by Ballistics Research, Inc., of Rome, Ga., the patented DPRS allows the test-firing of a suspected firearm using the same ammunition used in a crime, with immediate recovery of the projectile fully preserved in the condition in which it left the barrel, including the powder residue. Its ability to preserve the parts of a detonated pipe bomb for forensic study makes the DPRS an indispensable tool for bombing investigations.

DPRS capabilities are extraordinary. Every other projectile recovery method in use today, such as the water tank and the cotton box, has one thing in common the device itself causes damage to the projectile, often shattering it or causing severe deformation. An intact bullet recovered with the DPRS for comparison to a crime scene bullet is far quicker and easier to match accurately than one recovered by any other known method. The Duke system also is less expensive and far more versatile than the commonly used water tank.

The system's ability to handle rounds from weapons of all sizes with pristine results also is significant for national defense. A Defense Department weapons development and testing facility is among the first purchasers of the DPRS. In addition to supporting superior tests of ammunition under development, the system affords the unprecedented advantage of conducting non-destructive evaluation of captured enemy ordnance.

The system uses two specialized types of material sandwiched in a series of alternating layers inside a caster-mounted metal box. A special blend of long-grained natural and synthetic fibers cocoons around the projectile to protect it, while a specialized friction material layer absorbs residual velocity and kinetic energy. Projectiles come to rest within the layers, where they are easily recovered by hand within seconds.

Ballistics Research, Inc., is a privately held company founded in 1999, dedicated to development of superior tools for law enforcement and national security.
