Paper Abstract

An internal research and development program at Teledyne Brown Engineering has produced a laser radar device to measure velocities of projectiles as they travel through the barrel of a gun. The technique measures velocities directly via the Doppler shift imposed on a retro- reflected laser beam. The device, called the In-Bore Chronograph (IBC), is believed to be the first coherent laser radar to be offered commercially. The IBC measures in-bore velocities from 5 to 2500 m/sec.
