Abstract : An instrumentation system has been developed which is capable of obtaining high frequency response data from a projectile during gun launch. The system uses a 'hard-wire' technique to provide a direct recording path from an instrumented projectile. The technique has been used many times and has proven to be very reliable. A one-channel, and a two-channel system have been designed and tested which can be used with various projectiles. Data recorded using these systems agrees well with theoretical calculations.
