Abstract:

Phase IV has consisted of designing a power supply to provide the high currents required and incorporating the power supply into the gage body, examining methods of increasing the signal gain of the velocimeter in order that the practical measurement range of the gage in field use may be extended down to velocities of tens of meters per second, determining the most suitable data recording method for use with the gage in the field, and improving the shock velocity generator utilized in laboratory tests. This report describes these Phase IV activities in their detail.
