This report summarizes the acquisition and development of equipment, instrumentation, software, and their networking to augment optical diagnostics employed in supersonic reacting and non-reacting flow experiments. A high-speed camera system and image intensifier were acquired and integrated into the computer-controlled data-acquisition system of the Supersonic Shear-Layer facility at Caltech. Experiments to date have made use of this equipment, extending previous capabilities to high-speed schlieren quantitative flow visualization and image correlation velocimetry, with further experiments currently in progress.
