A photo-optical system has been developed for determining the velocity of a projectile after ta?get penetration and the simultaneous observation of ballistic phenomena. This system pro vides a wide field of view and overcomes the difficulties introduced by light from the projectile-target impact and by the pretriggering of velocity-measuring transducers by particles broken from the target. This system enables the measurement of residual velocity with an error of only 1 to 2 percent and, at the same time, permits the observation of size, shape, distribution of other particles and distortion of the projectile.
