Paper Abstract

The shaped charge jet diagnostic with the so-called synchro- streak-technique (SST) is well described in a number of earlier publications. New insights in the particularized jet behavior have been found with the observation of the jet with 'two' cameras in synchro streak technique in medium and larger distances. The test set-ups with the used two cameras, the gained streak records and their analysis will be described in detail. Some time has to be invested to get a good comparison of the discrete particles recorded at shorter distances or earlier times to the same particles observed at larger distances or later times, a comparison which can be also quickly and well understood by non specialists. These streak records with the corresponding analysis explain the high cut- off velocities of the jets in larger stand-offs and give clear indications on what has to be improved to obtain better qualities.
