Abstract:

The Morris Dam Ballistic Range is located on a lake formed by Morris Dam on the San Gabriel River, about five miles north of Azusa, California. The range facilities are used in the acquisition and study of water entry data, underwater trajectory characteristics and structural damage information on underwater and air to water projectiles. Several facilities are provided for the launching of projectiles. Selection is made on the basis of the type of projectile being tested and the type of data to be acquired. Each test area has available adequate instrumentation capabilities to allow the acquisition of a maximum amount of data with a high degree of reliability.
