In 2010 Consolite began working with Dr. John Bond, the inventor of the CERA process, and the technique was developed into a complete system to automate the development of fingerprints on cartridge casings, with fully integrated image capture and enhancement. This was the start of Consolite Forensics. Since then the original CERA has been redeveloped into a new optical device now called CERA LT, and a second unique system called HPS has also been brought to market. HPS, the Hot Print System, is already helping agencies world-wide in developing fingerprints on thermal paper such as till receipts. A series of further product launches is planned for the coming months and years.
