The present invention discloses an in-flight testing of projectile and mortar fuzes. A microminiature electronic circuitry in a cartridge form is designed to attach to any of the large caliber shell or mortar fuzes. The test-cartridge is a recoverable, reusable, high-g hardened device. The system for sampling and recording projectile fuzes during a period of target impact comprises a power supply a timing and control logic unit an accelerometer an amplitude encoder a shift register and an interface connector to transform stored information of the fuze functioning characteristics to a ground station readout unit.
