Tailoring to specific needs of studying hyper speed impacts

Projectile acceleration - ITHPP

Electromagnetic forces allow the controlled and reproducible acceleration of projectiles. This can be applied for low speeds (a few hundred m/s) but also for very high speeds (above 10km/s). Such capability opens up the opportunity to conduct studies on hyper speed impacts applied within the following fields:

  • Defence: effects of impacts and physics of explosives
  • Space: impacts of micrometeorites

Such knowledge and knowhow is available to customers who have specific needs for which ITHPP can respond by adapting pre-existing technologies and techniques or indeed by a complete design taking into consideration required performances, security and ergonomics of use.
