Paper Abstract

Artillery type projectiles are evaluated in flight for flight integrity and surface-evident structural failures by Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory, Group W-3, by three photographic techniques: (1) range surveillance and gross failures by high speed framing cameras, (2) multiple observations along the firing range by Drum-Film-Image-Synchronized cameras, and (3) photo-chamber, suppressed light microflash photography, utilizing plate and/or drum cameras.
