This report documents the results obtained from a comparison of free-flight spark range tests and PRODASMAGNUS computer stability results for 30mm spin stabilized projectiles. Two configurations were considered, each with the same boom diameter of 0.5, 1.0 inch and 1.25 inch boom lengths. The results show that PRODASMAGNUS can accurately predict the effects of a booms presence on projectile stability.
