NIAR Electromagnetic Effects Lab at Wichita State University


Bird Shot

While still in the design phase, we will have a compressed gas gun with a 40ft launch tube capable of performing FAA certification testing of 240-280 knots and Air Force bird strike testing of 240 550+ knots.

Our first tests will be for radomes and empennages but we will be able to also test windshields and wings. We will also have high speed camera recording of at least 5,000 fps.
