Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


A very high shock telemetry system is developed and designed to operate when subjected to acceleration forces of 50,000 g's in a 120 mm gun environment. This system consists of a radio frequency transmitter, a ten channel FM/FM multiplexer, a very rugged power supply, a microstrip patch antenna, and a sensor module. The sensor module contains a tri-axial accelerometer designed to measure the projectile's low in-flight radial and drag forces. Two additional accelerometers measure the projectile's high in-bore setback and balloting forces. Standard off-the-shelf telemetry components used in the telemetry system performed very well in preliminary high `g' (50,000 g's) tests in a laboratory gun at the Army Research Development Center.
