Abstract:

Four different systems are shown to be capable, within certain limitations, of distinguishing between acceleration pulses caused by 1-increment mortar firings delta V 270 fps. and those resulting from the accidental impact of the projectile due to delivery by a malfunctioned parachute delta V 270 fps.. All of these systems sense velocity change, and depend on the difference between the two conditions to achieve handling safety. The systems are compared and recommendations for further investigation are given. Author
