TrackEye ARENA

When it comes to fragmentation test, it is impossible to use a classic 3D configuration for measuring the spatial repartition of fragments due to the high number of pieces which can mask each other.

TrackEye Arena offers an alternative solution where one or several screens with possibly different thicknesses or materials are positioned at a certain distance from an exploding device and monitored by a high speed camera.

When the mortar detonates, shrapnels and particles will scatter and pierce the panels producing bright spots on the image with the shape of the fragment. The TrackEye software offers then a combination of dedicated statistics modules to characterize the flying particles impacting the screens for a qualitative understanding of the fragmentation test.
