Paper Abstract

The ability to image high velocity projectiles requires a precise trigger, short gate periods and known timing data for performance measurement. Data analysis software provides a means for data reduction to useable numerical ballistic parameters. The software relies on knowns of image format, image frame rate, gate period, and timing data for its analytical capability. Prior to applying the software to the data analysis task, the basics of image capture and data annotation must be established to provide a suitable basis for software analysis of ballistic performance. Empirical data can be obtained through the use of simple tools to properly understand the image capture dynamics and establish a precise basis for ballistic analysis.
