Paper Abstract

In recent years session we presented devices and methods for laser based trajectory measurement of hand gun bullets, which also included the estimation of light scatter from such bodies in free flight. While our first approach for gathering the scatter qualities of arbitrary projectiles using metrological image processing resulted in a polar fourier series of the outer contour of the projectile, which could be used to calculate the scatter behavior, the question of determining the contour as an parameterized ogive came up, which then could also be used to determine the type of projectile literally on the fly, assumed high enough image resolution. The present paper is understood as a continuation of last years papers with focus on the scatter characteristics of ogive shaped bodies and the metrological identification of the ogives of projectiles.
