28 September 2016 Challenges in system design of an optronic, laser-based measurement system for projectile trajectories
Author Affiliations +
The paper deals about central aspects of a new measurement principle, developed to record the 3D trajectory of gun fired projectiles with electronic cameras by illumination with a widened laser beam. Details on the measurement principle and achievements also from live firings will be revisited and an outline of lessons learned be given. Challenges like proper illumination, choice of the camera, system arrangements as well as for postprocessing will be discussed under consideration of imaginable fields of application. It will be shown how simulations can be used to aid optimization of the system design for a certain use case.
