Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division (NSWC Crane) has patented an improved method for modeling ballistic events in three dimensions. Capable of supporting the high speeds required to capture ballistic events, this Real-Time High-Speed 3D Modeling (RTH3M) method accurately and expediently models projectiles in 3D. Current projectile modeling methods, such as orthogonal X-ray, are inaccurate and often subjective.

The RTH3M approach can capture information on an object moving as fast is 10,000 fps, allows 3D modeling to take place as the event is happening, automatically determines the shape, size, and speed of the projectile, and provides a complete 360 view including cavities and surface feature. This proven method is applicable to a variety of applications including use with research and testing organization as well as universities who want a more advanced accurate method for capturing high-speed test data.
