Paper Abstract

This paper describes the ways how to measure the airburst height of projectiles and rockets. In general, the airburst height could be determined by using triangulation method or the images from the camera installed on the radar. There are some limitations in these previous methods when the missiles impact the sea surface. To apply triangulation method, the cameras should be installed so that the lines of sight intersect at angles from 60 to 120 degrees. There could be no effective observation towers to install the optical system. In case the range of the missile is more than 50km, the images from the camera of the radar could be useless. This paper proposes the method to measure the airburst height of sea impact projectile by using a single camera. The camera would be installed on the island near to the impact area and the distance could be computed by using the position and attitude of camera and sea level. To demonstrate the proposed method, the results from the proposed method are compared with that from the previous method.
