EMPI teams with AFRL and Hydrosoft for Successful High-Speed Sled Track Experiment

Nov 18, 2020

After years of static testing and modeling, EMPI engineers watched as the warhead and nose assembly accelerated through the New Mexico at Holloman's High Speed Test Track.  The item reached the expected velocity and detonated at the end of the track such that the fragment pattern and speed could be captured by high-speed video.
