Quantitative information on hypervelocity impact dynamics was obtained from 30 shots. Cadmium spheres projected at a velocity of 25,000 fps impacted against multiplate targets. Instrumentation used during the test includes five channels of flash X rays, high-speed framing camera, model detectors, impact pressure probes, laser stress-wave sensors, and photostress analyzer. However, data from the pressure measurements and the stress-wave analysis are not included in this report. Some preliminary conclusions made from the test and a few remarks on the experimental techniques are included in this report.
