Abstract : A projectile strain damage indicator utilizes a plurality of strain gages fixedly disposed on the orthogonal axes of a structural beam member which is operatively located within the ogive of a projectile. The strain gages provide electrical pulses to an energy conserving micropowered circuit which records strains only above a predetermined level that the projectile is subjected to while in transport.
