High-speed Cameras for Ballistics & Combustion
Chronos high-speed camera systems combine the high-resolution and framerates required to capture fast moving projectile launches during ballistics testing, and combustion analysis events.
Capturing high-quality, precision video down to the millisecond is critical for detailed analysis of projectile launch and combustion analysis. From tracking emittance for safety testing and maintenance, to product testing for automotive engines, tracking and analyzing is empowered with Chronos high-speed cameras.
With up to 40,000 frames per second, Engineers are able to observe, in slow-motion, chemical reactions during stoichiometric combustion. Different record modes allow for burst capture during unpredictable events and add-on accessories allow for sound and light triggering. For gun manufacturers, Chronos cameras capture recoil and misfire during product development and testing.
The all-in-one system includes a robust 5” display and battery pack perfect for portability when observing ballistics tests in the field or in a testing facility. The ease-of-use virtually eliminates the learning curve and the affordability is perfect for any team’s budget, so they can focus on the work and not on becoming a camera expert.

Some things to consider when choosing a high-speed camera for Ballistics and combustion are:
What is the duration and speed of the event?
Chronos range from 1,000 - 40,000 FPS / 3-16 seconds of record time
What is the level of detail required to capture the event?
Chronos range from 1280x1024 or 1920x1080HD max resolution.
What is the lighting sensitivity/contrast required to capture the event?
Chronos range from ISO 320-16,000 depending upon model and sensor type (color or monochrome).
I like the Chronos because it is affordable and portable. I use it to study firearms. Some videos I have shot are to help diagnose malfunctions and others are to document certain characteristics.
