Paper Abstract

Scientists and Engineers still require to record essential parameters during the design and testing of new (or refined) munitions. This essential data, such as velocities, spin, pitch and yaw angles, sabot discards, impact angles, target penetrations, behind target effects and post impact delays, need to be recorded during dynamic, high velocity, and dangerous firings. Traditionally these parameters have been recorded on high-speed film cameras. With the demise of film as a recording media a new generation of electronic digital recording cameras has come to be accepted method of allowing these parameters to be recorded and analysed. Their obvious advantage over film is their instant access to records and their ability for almost instant analysis of records. This paper will detail results obtained using a new specially designed Ballistic Range Camera manufactured by Specialised Imaging Ltd.
