DET-013
Ballistics, gun powder and solid propellants - 2021

Munitions and guided projectiles

OBJECTIVE :

This course will provide learners with an overview of all the areas and knowledge required to understand the technical and operational performance of barrel-fired projectiles.

COURSE DURATION AND TIMETABLE :

The course lasts 5 days (28 hours).

GENERAL APPROACH :

The course is for anyone interested in barrel-fired projectiles.

Conferences provide both a solid theoretical foundation and a useful overview of the specific problems an engineer encounters with design, simulation, expertise and validation in flight.

This course will enable learners to have valuable discussions with ballistics experts they will encounter.

PREREQUISITE :

Course level: Advanced

Course accessible to ENSI-level engineers and experienced tech degree-level technicians.

We strongly recommend the prior completion of course:

DET 010 "Exterior ballistics"

COURSE DIRECTOR(S) :

Dr Sébastien CHANGEY :

Guidance, Navigation and Control (GNC), Franco-German Research Institute of St. Louis
