Title: Reference Ballistic Chronograph
Published: April 30, 2009
Abstract: A ballistic chronograph with a measurement uncertainty of less than +/- 0.1 m/s has been designed, constructed and tested. Because of this low uncertainty, this chronograph can be used as a reference to calibrate and/or characterize the performance of commercially-available chronographs.
