Bomb Scoring Video System

Bomb Scoring System Overview

  • The automatic analysis of the results, once the impact recording is complete, takes few seconds to be sent to the operator.
  • Detection is made possible by the explosion of a bomb or cartridge.
  • Night detection is done by IR camera capability.
  • If no explosion occurs, daytime sensing will be clouds of smoke or dust generated by the impact.
  • If no illumination point is created, due to very low impact energies or particularities of the terrain, the high-speed camera allows to recover the impact point of the bomb by following it.
