This extensively instrumented, indoor, free–flight range test is operated by the Munitions Experimental Test Center.
It is the only one of its kind in Canada. Available launching guns can fire fin — or spin — stabilized models as large as 155 mm in diameter at velocities up to Mach 7.
The air flow around projectiles in free flight may be photographed and in–flight position may be determined to permit the measurement of aerodynamic characteristics and stability derivatives.
- Controlled environment.
- Extensive flight analysis capabilities.
