Abstract
PITCH AND YAW AT THE MOMENT OF LAUNCH ARE IMPORTANT PARAMETERS WHEN CHARACTERIZING THE BALLISTIC PERFORMANCE OF A KINETIC ENERGY PROJECTILE. PRESENTLY, DATA ON PROJECTILE ORIENTATION IS ACQUIRED USING X-RAY CAMERAS INVOLVING PHOTOGRAPHIC FILM WHICH MUST BE DEVELOPED AND THE IMAGES THEN MANUALLY MEASURED TO EXTRACT THE GEOMETRIC DATA. THE PROPOSED STUDY INVESTIGATES THE APPLICABILITY AND DESIGN OF ELECTRONIC IMAGING SYSTEMS CAPABLE OF RECORDING AND REDUCING THESE X-RAY IMAGE DATA DIGITALLY AS WELL AS PROVIDING ADDED DATA ANALYSIS CAPABILITY.
