Requirement was to capture the detonation and form of different shape charges over several trials. In all over 50 separate firings were recorded using 3 Photron high speed cameras. The location was the main arena at Radnor Ranges. One set of trials involved targeting the shape charge at a 105mm live shell. This shoot presented a number of issues, namely the velocity and brightness of the shape charge and the destructive nature of a potential shell detonation. For the shape charge, we used the Photron SAX high speed camera with the following settings – 50000fps, 1/1000000s shutter speed, 512 x 256 resolution, 50mm F1.4 lens stopped down to F18.
