The Air Force Weapons Laboratory conducted a series of experiments as part of Project GEST Gas Explosive Simulation Technique to evaluate the flow characteristics of fireballs resulting from balloon explosions. A primary diagnostic for these events was an infrared vidicon sensor system operated by the General Electric Company, Space Sciences Laboratory GE-SSL under the sponsorship of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency DARPA. This report presents the results of these diagnostic experiments.
