Image Systems – Projectile Orientation Measurement (POM)

The Projectile Orientation Measurement (POM) system has been specially developed to perform a real time measurement of the 3D position and orientation (pitch and yaw offset angles relative to the line of fire) of a projectile in flight. Heart of system is a frame consisting of two calibrated cameras placed at a 90 degree angle with two opposing flashing light sources.

Cameras and light flashes are simultaneously triggered by real time light gates to create and capture one shadow image for each view of the approaching bullet. The systems supports testing stems.
