Abstract:

This program was successful in producing a state-of-the art capability, resulting in the development and implementation of the following A unique horizontalvertical precision-ballistics gun system, multiple wave mechanics diagnostics, and two experimental configurations were developed and employed in this research. The diagnostics developed and implemented include a redundant induction-coil system, B-dot rate change of magnetic field sensor coils and analysis system for dynamic 5DOF state measurement, a network of flush-mounted surface pressure gages initial size of phi 6.35 mm, final size phi 1.26 mm, fiber optic break wires, colored particulate mechanics layering method, chemical fixingsectioning of target, and Scanning Electron Microscope SEM particle analysis techniques. This document captures details of the last year of a three year effort with an Executive Summary covering the early years and tying the efforts together.
