2-D Shape Fitting for Locating Exploding Projectile from Explosion Patch
For test and evaluation of a proximity fuze, it is necessary to know the distance offset of the exploding ammunition round, fitted with the fuze, from a specific target. If the event is recorded using in-line high-speed photography the event of explosion can be resolved in time, and it becomes necessary to ascertain the position of the round, wrt the target, as it is exploding. An estimation of intensity centroid position fails as the flash is non-uniform in nature and is partially occluded by the exploding round. This paper is about an approach to find the location of the round using 2-D shapes fitting of the explosion patch.
