Abstract

Based on the maximum cross-correlation function, CCFmax, a new parameter called signature difference, Ds, is developed for verifying the similarity of the 2D and 3D ballistics signatures of the standard bullets and of the prototype standard casings.  It is suggested that the parameter and algorithm developed for the standard bullets and casings project could be used for any 2D and 3D surface topography comparisons in surface metrology.
