Paper Abstract

A new High Speed Still Video (SV) caera system has been developed by Hadland Photonics Limited (U.K.)' specifically to address the problem of recording projectiles in flight and other associated ballistic events. The system, known as the SV-553 BR. camera, is capable of capturing fast moving events with exposure times selectable from 1 millisecond down to 200 nanoseconds and displaying the captured image on a high resolution monitor within 0.5 second of triggering the camera. This paper describes the design of the system and gives examples of a variety of events recorded with the camera.
