Abstract
In studying the behaviour of different projectiles when penetrating a target, in this case gelatin, the development of an integrated flash X-ray, high speed photography and ballistic screen instrumentation system has proven useful for gaining qualitative and quantitative data of the projectile motion before, during and after penetration. The system discussed permits a three dimensional analysis of projectile behaviour inside the target, thereby providing measurements of projectile velocity, yaw and tumble, and enabling the study of the cavity formed by the projectile at various instants during penetration. Methodologies are compared and the uncertainties of the measurement techniques are discussed.
