Paper Abstract

Employment of modern laser systems to improve ballistic gun range operations and related data acquisition is discussed. Of key importance is their use as motion sensors and as image forming instruments. Specific application in the LTV Missiles and Electronics Group, Missiles Division, ballistic research gun range is emphasized. A powerful new approach for determination of behind-armor-debris mass and velocity fields is also described. It is based on holograms of the debris field which have been made here for the first time.
