Paper Abstract

The technique described allows x-rays to be used to produce high-speed cine pictures of projectiles in flight and during target impact when surrounded by smoke, flame and intense light. A long pulse x-ray source together with a gated x-ray image intensifier is coupled to a high-speed cine camera permitting the production of sequential pictures at 22,000 frames per second, with exposure times down to one micro-second. Pictures of high velocity projectiles in flight are shown.
