Paper Abstract

This paper describes the design and operation of two photographic systems developed for use in recording data on small objects traveling at high speeds. The first system, developed primarily for measuring pitch and yaw, uses a single first surface mirror; the second, which records five images for 360° viewing of objects in flight, uses dual first-surface mirrors. Also described are two high-intensity lighting systems. One for use in obtaining photographic data during very short exposure times; the other for use with synchroballistic techniques.
