Paper Abstract

Studies of detonation phenomena in solid high explosive charges at Defence Research Establishment Suffield, undertaken in 1977, generated a requirement for a photographic range facility which would permit ultra-high speed photographs of large explosive charges to be taken at close range, and which would also be light enough in weight to be portable. This paper describes the successful design and operation of a photographic field facility which satisfies both of these competing criteria.
