High-Speed Imaging for Combustion and Explosives Research

With speeds of over 1 million frames per second, high speed imaging is an invaluable research tool capable of capturing the most fleeting events in scientific and engineering applications. Yet achieving this speed comes with strings attached. High frame rates are accompanied by very small resolutions, making it more challenging to see the subject matter. For Tech Briefs’ Expert Insight series, Kyle Gilroy, Application Development Manager at AMETEK Vision Research, a global provider of differentiated technology solutions, provides perspective on high-speed imaging becoming an invaluable research tool for combustion measurement and explosives research. Kyle spoke with Aerospace & Defense Technology (A&DT) about how the use of high-speed cameras are becoming ubiquitous within explosives research performed by the aerospace and defense industry.
