OUR SERVICES IN BALLISTICS RESEARCH

  • We are not a bullet producer in the classical sense, but primarily a private ballistics research center.

  • We regularly work with high-end ballistics test procedures which we can partly offer to you.

TERMINAL BALLISTICS TESTS

We carry out terminal ballistics test on ballistic gelatin (20% NATO) or ballistic soap. From these tests you get the wound ballistics performance of the desired projectile at the velocity you plan to use it. Additionally, also a high-speed camera capture can be added to document the pulsation of the temporary cavity in the gelatin.

CALCULATION OF DYNAMIC STABILITY

We provide the calculation of gyroscopic and dynamic stability throughout the whole velocity regime: With these results you first know if the bullet fits to your rifle twist according to gyroscopic stability and further if the projectile design appears to be stable when entering into the transonic regime.

CALCULATION OF AERODYNAMIC COEFFICIENTS

The aerodynamic coefficients we calculate can be used to derive bullet drop, aerodynamic jump and wind drift of your desired round using your own 6-degree of freedom model or one provided for you by us.

MEASUREMENT OF THE REAL VELOCITY PROFILE

Measurement of the real velocity profile within the first 500 – 1000m (depending on the caliber) using Doppler radar measurement. Here you will get data from live shooting with your bullet, eliminating any kind of uncertainties from numerical modelling.

WIND TUNNEL PROJECTILE TESTING

We meaure aerodynamic coefficients using wind tunnel testing. If you want to go to the top level in defining (and also tuning) the aerodynamics of a bullet, this is the right option. In a sub- and supersonic wind tunnel all relevant aerodynamic parameters are evaluated for angles of attack between 0 -10°. Implementing these parameters into 6-dof programs will give you the exact trajectory of the projectile.

DISPERSION AND FRICTION MEASUREMENTS

We can measure dispersion on a 500m indoor test range with evaluation analytics to detect potential systematic error sources in the dispersion pattern.

We are also able to measure the friction between the bullet and the barrel.
