Visualization of explosion phenomena is very important and essential to evaluate the performance of explosive
effects. The phenomena, however, generate blast waves and fragments from cases. We must protect our visualizing
equipment from any form of impact. In the tests described here, the front lens was separated from the camera head by
means of a fiber-optic cable in order to be able to use the camera, a Shimadzu Hypervision HPV-1, for tests in severe
blast environment, including the filming of explosions. It was possible to obtain clear images of the explosion that
were not inferior to the images taken by the camera with the lens directly coupled to the camera head. It could be
confirmed that this system is very useful for the visualization of dangerous events, e.g., at an explosion site, and for
visualizations at angles that would be unachievable under normal circumstances.
