Paper Abstract

Air Force Research Laboratory and MetroLaser, Inc. researchers have completed the initial development and transition to operational use of portable field holography systems. This paper documents the first fully operational use of a novel and unique experimental capability for remote field holography. In this paper we document the field trials and initial experiments that were performed with the Remote Holographic Interferometry System (RHIS) at the Munitions Directorate, Air Force Research Laboratory Site at Eglin, AFB, Florida. These experiments were performed to assess the effectiveness of remote pulsed laser holography combined with high-speed videography to document the formation and propagation of plumes of materials created by impact of high-speed projectiles. This paper details the development of the experimental procedures and initial results of this new tool.
