Abstract
In the fly-by sample return project of the ISAS, fragments of Asteroid 1998-SF38's surface will be collected upon high speed impingements of steel projectiles onto its surface. The projectiles will be launched from a compact launcher or a projector. The Shock Wave Research Center is collaborating with ISAS in the design of the projector and its performance test. This paper reports the design of the projector that can launch stainless steel projectiles of 100 g in weight at 300 m/s muzzle speed. The production of fragments at impingement was tested on the ground.
