Application Note

The New Way to Look at Ballistic Impacts: FAST Thermal Imaging Application Note

Source: TELOPS

This application note examines the benefits of high speed infrared cameras for use in testing ballistic impacts, and compares their use to that of traditional high-speed visible imaging systems. The Telops FAST-IR 1000 High-Speed Infrared Camera was used to measure the results of ballistic impacts for this application note. Visible impact ballistic testing is discussed, as well as infrared impact ballistic testing. The results of a field testing experiment are also addressed.
