Trajectory control of small rotating projectiles by laser discharges Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • Summary form only given. The experimental and theoretical analysis of the trajectory control of small rotating projectiles by laser discharges has been performed. The laser spark was generated by 1.06 m Nd-YAG laser (300 mJ, 5 ns pulse duration). It was shown that the spark generates a strong shock wave, a hot gas spot, and a slow air jet. The gas heating is considered as a primary mechanism for the pressure redistribution along the projectile surface and the trajectory change.
