High-G Magnetic Capture

Selectable deceleration curve enables repeatable and accurate research results

  • Meets U.S. Army requirements to stop a 60 lb projectile traveling up to 1,300 ft/s in a well-controlled, repeatable manner resulting in a high-g acceleration test event
  • Existing Sierra Lobo models enable accurate computational analysis to establish the feasibility and limitations of the designed device
  • Eliminates expendable materials, saving thousands of dollars per test event
  • Does not damage the projectile during deceleration, enabling projectile reusability
  • Selectable deceleration curve enables repeatable and accurate research results
  • U.S. Pat. No. 8,237,526
