The company for the supply and support of state of the art instrumentation for use within Ballistics R&D and proof testing.

Internal Ballistics

Products designed for the study and analysis of the processes originally accelerating a projectile.

External Ballistics

Products designed for the study and analysis of the flight of a projectile through the air.

Terminal Ballistics

Products designed for the study and analysis of the interaction between a projectile or explosion and its intended target.


Luminys LabLight

Lighting for Maximum Quality in High-Speed Imagery

The Luminys LabLight, available in 30K or 15K configurations, is the first portable high intensity lighting system specifically designed for testing events that require high light output for high-speed photography.

..The system runs on standard 240VAC supplies, powering the lighting heads from a specifically designed portable battery power unit. Meaning More light output without expensive power installation, power bills and drain on resources during testing.

..As with other Luminys systems long duration lighting can be achieved to not only capture the complete cycle of your event but also ensure ease of operation during the test. Over 10 second lighting times mean triggering can either be carried out manually of via remote control.

..Low level idle with instant high (1ms to full power and full colour temperature).means minimal heat output, no pneumatic cooling or shutter needed and no.warm-up time.

Two 30K LabLights were placed 1.5m from the path of a fast moving projectile in recent tests where a Phantom camera was used at over 63K fps with an exposure time of 1 micro second showed excellent results of the projectile approaching and penetrating the target.

Lighting can be further enhanced by the Luminys range of overhead reflectors and enclosures.
