3-D FlightPath

Shoot straight
and fly right.

The world's most accurate software for measuring and computing flight trajectories of bullets, projectiles, missiles and other flying objects.

3-D FlightPath

3-D FlightPath is designed specifically for use at aeroballistic test ranges. It has now been installed at over 30 test ranges around the world - from national projectile weapon ranges and small-caliber ballistic ranges to ball-flight research labs. Whatever your range configuration and test protocols, there is an edition of 3-D FlightPath software for you.


This edition is ideal for computing pitch, yaw, velocity, and trajectory using multiple fixed position high-speed cameras. The Fixed Camera Edition is used extensively on both large projectile weapons test ranges and on small-caliber bullet test ranges. This is the most accurate flight dynamics analysis package on the market - as benchmarked by our customers!

Ideal for automated, repetitive testing of small caliber rounds along a flight line or at point of impact. Test engineers can program the software to automatically record and statistically sort pitch, yaw and impact positions.

This edition is used in conjunction with orthogonal X-ray systems companies like L3 Communications. Flash X-ray systems are often used on large projectile ranges to capture motion in the first few meters after the muzzle during the fireball.

Most national weapons ranges have one or more Flight Followers (from MS Instruments) or Trajectory Trackers (from Specialised Imaging). By combining scan angle data and high-speed video images from two of these devices into the new Flight Tracker Edition, you can measure aeroballistic dynamics over distances of hundreds of meters.

This edition combines many pairs of still images acquired in digital indoor spark ranges (often called "shadowgraph" ranges) to measure extremely accurate flight dynamics of projectiles. This software package is aimed at engineers who are upgrading their spark ranges with the most current digital cameras.
