Abstract
The paper presents a new cost-effective method based on the use of Doppler radars which was developed at DREV to characterize the fragmentation of HE munitions. Three experiments are performed simultaneously during the static detonation of the munition: a 35-GHz radar is used to measure the Doppler power spectrum of the fragmenting munition; a second radar in the same frequency band provides information on the cross section and drag characteristics of individual fragments; sampling of the fragments by means of collectors gives information on their spatial mass distribution.
