Applied Ballistics Future of Radar

In this video Bryan Litz, a highly regarded ballistician for Barnes, resents his use of Doppler radar.

Background: The application of Doppler radar systems to collect precise external ballistic data was pioneered by Infinition Inc of Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, Canada. The company developed a device marketed as LabRadar . The system has an operational range of 100 yards and accurately measures the velocity of the projectile along its path. By collecting velocity with a high degree of accuracy it is then possible to determine things like ballistic coefficients. Extremely useful tool to accurately asses new bullet geometry design.
