Abstract:

The Aerofuze system is a projectile diagnostic telemeter for mortars and artillery. Developed to collect in-bore and in-flight dynamics including spin, pitch, yaw, and 3-axis acceleration in real time, data is relayed to a ground station using an integrated S-band transmitter. One unit was successfully fired on a M795 spotter projectile at Yuma Proving Ground, AZ, in May 2015. The unit was fired twice prior in the 155-mm Air Gun at the U.S Army Armament, Research and Development Center, Picatinny Arsenal, NJ. The system telemetered 51 sec of uninterrupted aeroballistics data, capturing both in-bore and in-flight data, which is presented in this report.
