TYBRIN CORP FORT WALTON BEACH FL
Pagination or Media Count:
An overview of ricochet effects on the safety control of impact areas during advanced tactical weapon tests on the Eglin ranges is presented. Archived film and data related to ricochet are reviewed, and a methodology capable of generating adequate safety criteria for tests which have a high probability of ricochet is proposed. The proposed methodology will make use of existing range planning methodology and computer codes in developing the ricochet safety criteria.
