Abstract
High speed photography with up to ten rotating turbine-mirror cameras is one of several diagnostics used at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) for studying the hydrodynamics of nonnuclear explosions. At each of the multiple camera test facilities, a versatile and extensive computerized fast camera control system supports operation of the cameras over a vast range of camera, rotor, and speed configurations. The camera controller functions are distributed over many components of the bunker control systems in which they are embedded, and represent a significant portion of the parent control system. The system facilitates preparation for experiments using speeds and configurations never before practical, greatly improves reliability, and maintains a database for rotor quality assurance.
