Authors: Donald Little
Date/Pages: August 2009; 18 pages
Abstract: An efficient method was needed to perform ballistic testing using the 0.22-cal. fragment-simulating projectiles (FSP) at low subsonic velocities in order to evaluate very thin lightweight composite and metallic materials at around 1 lb/ft2 areal density. This technical note outlines the custom gun system developed to enable this ballistic testing.
