Interior Ballistic Simulation Facility


FLC Region

Security Lab



Picatinny Arsenal




This ISO-registered Air Gun Facility has 2-and 5-inch air guns that provide high-g, unidirectional accelerations and a 155mm gun that gives angular and linear acceleration simultaneously. They operate by accelerating a piston containing the test object down the barrel by means of high-pressure gas. Soft recovery permits immediate post-test inspection and repeated testing of the same items. This equipment supports interior ballistic and time simulation test requirements of ARDEC projects as well as those of other Services and the private sector.
