Abstract:

A new method to process muzzle displacement transducer data has been developed and demonstrated on 5.56 and 40 mm weapon systems. The method allows much more flexibility in the placement of the measurement probes in a test fixture with no loss in measurement fidelity. The method also allows measurements to be taken with as few as two probes per axial measurement location, whereas previously used techniques required four probes.
