Abstract
In response to the Army"s requirement for new instrumentation for the quantitative evaluation of the whole-field dynamic response of ballistic impacted specimens, MetroLaser proposes a multi-beam laser velocimeter that will measure the time history of velocity and displacement at 8x8 points of the target throughout the impact. The time resolution of the measurement is estimated to be better than 1 microsecond and the record length would be 10 milliseconds or longer. The Phase I work would include both modeling and experimental demonstrations with a 16-beam system and would culminate with the conceptual design of a Phase II prototype.
