Fragmentation Analysis

TNO offers indoor fragmentation tests for warheads of up to 120 mm. Results can be given in JMEM or other formats suitable for input of lethality- or vulnerability assessment software such as TARVAC or POKALA, in which TNO also has much experience.

Spatial distributions

Spatial distributions of the fragments can be measured in terms of direction, velocity and mass. The testing method is unique as these results can be determined simultaneously by means of x-ray shadowgraphs.

Fragmentation tests

For ministries of defence and large companies in defence industry TNO has performed numerous fragmentation tests and in doing so has gathered much experience in the assessment of fragmenting warheads.
