Heyser Lecture

Bruce Koenig, BEK TEK LLC - Stafford, VA, USA

The Heyser Lecturer this year is former FBI agent and forensic consultant Bruce Koenig, who will illuminate the mysteries of acoustic gunshot analysis that first drew public attention with the examinations of a police department recording made during President John F. Kennedy’s assassination in Dallas, Texas, in 1963. He'll explain the audio tests performed in those examinations and shed light on controversial cases, such as recent police shootings. Koenig will offer insights on the use of critical listening, high-resolution waveform, spectrographic, narrow-band spectrum, energy contour, and statistical analyses, as well as giving his views on the latest developments in the field. He concludes with a look at the research needed to move acoustic gunshot analysis forward in coming years. The title of his lecture is, "Acoustic Forensic Gunshot analysis—The Kennedy Assassination and Beyond."
