Specialised Imaging has published a new applications report that demonstrates the utility of its SI Tracker 2 system in following flight behaviour of a high speed projectile when the unexpected happens. Improvements in powerful automotive propulsion and suspension systems over the last 50 years has allowed modern main battle tanks to incorporate progressively thicker and heavier armour protection systems, while maintaining considerable maneuverability and speed on the battlefield. In response to this, a new type of kinetic energy penetrator ammunition - Armour-piercing fin-stabilized discarding sabot (APFSDS) has been developed to effectively attack modern vehicle armour. The purpose of the ballistic range testing undertaken by Specialised Imaging was to investigate the effect on the flight behaviour of APFSDS projectiles when using propellants at different temperatures. The expected effects of higher temperatures are increased barrel pressures, increased velocities, asymmetric sabot separation and subsequent projectile instability. Velocity measurements were taken with Radar Doppler and projectile behaviour down range of the gun muzzle was captured using the SI Tracker 2 system.

SIM Series ultra-high speed framing cameras from Specialised Imaging incorporate an auxiliary optical port enabling secondary instruments such as streak cameras, high speed video or time resolved spectrometers to share the same optical axis as the framing channels. The ability, without compromise, to simultaneously analyse transient events with hyphenated time resolved imaging technologies opens the door to dissecting even the most complex ultra fast processes. Recording simultaneous ultra fast two-dimensional and time-resolved images is of significant interest to scientists in a growing number of fields of study including detonics, cavitation, plasma, and material science because you can now accurately correlate the events with different type of optical instruments to analyse processes that happens during or after the initial event captured by the SIM camera.
